when i do shutdown -h now

i get a "power down" message, but my comp does not go off, I have to hold down the power button to make it turn off. is there anyway to have slackware just turn of my itself? i'm on 9.1.

If your bios supports it theres no problem doing this.

Open /etc/rc.d/rc.modules in an editor and uncomment the line

#/sbin/modprobe apm

The call for power off is the last action (I think) in /etc/rc.d/rc.6 provided that apmd is running. Uncommenting that line loads apm at boot.

If you want to test and see if your bios supports it (or if it is enabled) enter the command

/sbin/modprobe apm

as root and watch to see if your box turns off at next shutdown. But you will have to uncomment that line unless you want to start apm manually at every session.
