Question Automatically turning off PC. Stopped working

After I has compiled and installed kernel 2.6.16 I was pleased to notice that the Pc turned itself off at shutdown.

After recompiling to support my Athlon dual core and enable >1GB RAM I have lost automatic turn-off. The PC goes to a message saying 'system halted' (IIRC) but doesn't turn itself off. What might have changed to disable ths?

Perhaps you forgot to add the support for ACPI to your new kernel?

Not so much a matter of forgetting but not knowing in the first place.

Thanks. Now sorted :-)
