Powerdown when shutting down


When I shutdown the computer (Debian Sarge) it doesn't powerdown, this was a thing woody did but Sarge doesn't do. How can I enable this?
Thanks

Hi,

How do you shutdown your box?

ctrl-alt-delete, halt, shutdown <options>, poweroff?

Hi again,

I found this, maybe it could help (near the bottom of the page):

or, a bit closer to 'home':

i actually use "poweroff" but it hangs at shutdown, at least until I have acpid running the it says acpi-shutdown called. Then my computer turns off.
