Is the circle still spinning? Try pressing ESC when you see the SuSE logo. It should switch to a verbose mode.

If that fails, next time logout, then hit ctrl+alt+backspace. Then at the console, type as root,

Where does it hang?

Your motherboard may not be fully ACPI-compliant, in which case you need to disable ACPI or recompile the kernel and configure the " Use real mode APM BIOS call to power off " option in makemenuconfig.
