Not familiar with Suse at all, but there should be an rc.something file (in /etc) corresponding to your runtime levels that calls a shutdown using either acpi or apm. My kernel has acpi compiled in and I don't use apm, but the configurations were already done so I didn't have to do anything. Not sure if this is helping...!
