boot issue [solved]: disabling ACPI before shutdown with a command
I have a serious problem with ACPI. I think this is a known bug of kernel and I found some users with this issue too: after shutdown of a Linux (any distro) system on certain notebooks (like my Acer Aspire model) the system doesn't boot, it doesn't even start bios loading; after an electric discharge procedure boot is again possible. This issue doesn't affect Windows on the same system.
I cannot wait for this strange kernel issue being solved because I think there is some serious problem underlying so I ask:
Is it possible to run a command before shutdown to disable any ACPI action? I see an ACPI error message at shutdown so I think that some parameter is written in some register at that time and I am looking for a command that stops any ACPI action or register updating before it does something that creates the boot issue.
Thank you in advance
