Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have SuSE 8.1 and ATX mainboard, so I expect that, when I say: shutdown now, linux realy turn off the computer. Insted it say that all the processes have been killed and that te level 6 have been reached or something like that. The monitor is still turned on as well as the computer so, I have to switch the computer off manualy.
You're telling it to shutdown now from the graphical login screen, right? If it is reaching runlevel 6, then your system is setup to reboot when you tell it to shutdown now (and it probably fails to reboot for some reason or other; mine doesn't reboot either when I tell it to). There should be an option somewhere, maybe kde control center, or some other suse sys admin tool, where you can set it to actually shutdown when you tell it to.
I did it. First, I have turned apm on in grub loader, and shutdown -h worked correctly. But problem was that after a 20 seconds of inactivity my screen was scrabbled with lines and comp was blocked. I tried to change things in sysconfig and apmd_proxy but nothing helped. After about an hour of wasting time with that I have turned off APM an turned on ACPI in GRUB and for now , all is going well...
