Slack13: Problem with machine_restart and acpi_poweroff


My computer cannot automatically restart or power off.
When I call:
#halt
it terminate all processes, the it call acpi_poweroff then display the message "system halt", and my computer stay at there and cannot type or do anything, one thing is needed to do is hold the power button and turn off.
Similarly,
#reboot
it stops at "machine_restart" and stay at them.
Do you know what's wrong with my computer?
My computer is ASUS K40IN, and it can turn off or restart automatically in Windows XP (without the help of the power button)

From the CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT:

Quote:
If you have an older machine (with a BIOS released prior to 2001) and it will
not power off on shutdown, try adding this to your kernel's lilo stanza:
append = "acpi=force"
Edit your /etc/lilo.conf to add the line:

Code:
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz-generic-2.6.29.6
  initrd = /boot/initrd.gz
  append = "acpi=force"
  root = /dev/hda6
  label = Lnx26296
  read-only
# Linux bootable partition config ends
and run lilo to make sure changes are taken into account after the next reboot:

Code:
/sbin/lilo
