Mandrake 9.1 doesn't reboot properly on Toshiba satellite

Hello, I am a long time Mandrake Linux user (since ver 7.2 I believe) and am very happy with it. Some time ago I installed Mandrake 9.1 on my Toshiba Satellite S1800-541 (which is called S205 in the USA) and everything runs fine except for one thing.
When I want to reboot it, for example with the 'reboot' command or the 'Reboot' option on GDM it closes everyting nicely but doesn't stop completely, it just' 'hangs' with a black screen before completely shutting down.
It hasn't been a problem because I just have to remember to do a 'shutdown' and then start it up again instead of rebooting, but I wondered if this is a 'bug' or just an 'undocumented feature'

Thank you for your attention,

Lucas 'Basurero' Vieites

I think it's a bug in the kernel. I used to have the same problem on my Satelite 1805 (pretty much the same specs as yours) with the kernel that came along with 9.1. You can download the 2.4.22 kernel for mandrake 9.2 and install it and things should be fine.
