Turn off ?!


Hello again.

A problem that always have followed me since the first day on linux...

While choosing the option Turn Off in startx or in console, it does a shutdown process but it doesn't turn the power off to the machine, is there a solution for this?

My machine is a AMD XP 2000 with slack 9 on it. ...yes the board supports the turn off without the button ... windows does it...

thank you

you may have to load the apm module.

try (as root):

modprobe apm

root@Mustaf:/# modprobe apm
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/apm.o.gz: init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/apm.o.gz: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
