RH9 is very old. You could try some newer distro if same problem persists. If you want to stick with RH then CentOS5 or RHEL5 is new. Also check the contents of grub.conf in /boot/grub.
It will be helpful if you can paste the contents here.

I agree with the other posters that you should get a more recent distro if you don't have a VERY GOOD reason to use RH9.

Else use the search here or learn to live with it (pushing the power button to switch it off is not that difficult, only inconvenient). I did a search for RH9 power and set the sortorder to ascending thread start date. There where some threeads relating to power but I did not check if there were solutions.

By the way, can you tell me why you use that distro? I always wonder why people choose an old distro. This is just out of interest.

This is not a very good reason to use an old distribution. You make your system prone to security without the updates. You can learn as much with newer distro as with old. It depends on the user.
And if you want to restrict yourself to older version its your choice. But there is more to learn in CentOS5 and RHEL5 than RH9. These are more mature distributions.
And still if you want to resolve th issue post the grub.conf file here to let us see if there is some issue. I had open suse that had did not power off itself and some editing in menu.lst had the issue solved. Nevertheless I gave up Suse and happy with Hardy. Now do not ask me to move on to newer version Intrepid. Hardy is LTS.

Give up on RHL9, its wide open to exploits as it hasn't been updated in yrs. Also, it won't function with newer HW.
Try CENTOS (free version of RHEL) or RH Fedora 10.

put it this way using RHL9 to learn "linux" is like using Win 95/98 to learn vista
sure ,some things have not changed TOO Much .

Those WERE proper answers. Also I asked you to post your grub.conf file.
Also it would be helpful if you look into the log file to see if there is anything that is creating problems.

Did you look into log files? If you are using lilo then post the lilo.conf file.
