shutdown doesn't powerdown
I'm a new linux user and I'm using MDK 9.2 with a gateway laptop. When I click the button to shutdown, mdk appears to shutdown but the power stays on and the fan keeps running. What can I do to solve this problem? If possible, give me baby steps please. Thanks!

This issue is caused by a conflict between APMACPI and your BIOS.

These 2 links may help.

When you enable apm, check the last line of the menu that appears, now my computer does magicly shut off by himself.
