FC5 does not shut down


My PC has an Asus A8N-VM mobo with an Athlon 3500 64 bit cpu. I cannot get it to shut down properly in that I can select"shut down" in the dialogue box and the HDD, mouse and K/B shut off but the power supply and cpu fan are still going.The final message on the monitor is "System halted". I have to press the start button to shut down completely. Anybody got any ideas?? please.

hi there,
are you using acpi or apm?
Code:
lsmod | grep -i acpi

I do not know but I get "ACPI Unable to load Description Tables" during the boot up sequence. Does this mean I am using apm? I tried entering the code you suggested and got "bash: lsmod: command not found".Presumably I need something else loading onto my system for this coding to work.If you have any more ideas I am more than happy to try them out but am away on family holiday for a week so will try anything out when I get back.
Thanks, edwal.

Try running that command as:

Code:
/sbin/lsmod | grep -i acpi

hi there,
it is possible that there is some conflict between apm and acpi.
what happens if you pass apm=off to the kernel?

Back from holiday and tried the possible solutions suggested but no improvement. I suspect it has something to do with the ACPI Unable to load Description Tables, so I guess I am going to spend some time "googling" for a possible answer. Thanks for your help and when I find an answer I will post it here.

As root in a terminal, do you get the same response with "shutdown -h now"?

Noxious, yes I am afraid it is just the same. Thanks for your suggestion.

Try this as root
Code:
/sbin/modprobe apm
You should not get any error messages if you have apm support. Then try doing a shutdown.

Tried /sbin/modprobe apm and got the reply FATAL: Module apm not found.So presumably I am not using apm and ACPI Unable to load Description Tables means I am not getting a functioning ACPI. Do I have to find a way of getting these Tables to load?
