Computer won't auto shutdown

I installed Mepis 6.5.02 with KDE 3.5 onto an older HP Pavilion 790n and when I click shutdown it hangs on the screen with the scrolling countdown. That's the first time I've seen this problem with Linux. Anyone know a fix for this? Thanks.

I would think it's likely an apm related issue.
