I can't tell you the exact answer, but it's something your mobo has to support. If it supports it, then you have to set it up. I read a thread that explains this a while ago, so do a search on this....

mobo is short for motherboard.

i have the same "problem" on my laptop, it shuts down by itself, but does not power off. i guess it depends on the compatibility of that feature and mandrake.

Angry Problem Shutting down

I am using a laptop as well and just recently re-did my 9.1 install and all was working well, then it started hanging on "Sendng TERM to all processes..." and never recovers. I am forced to drop back and punt with the trusty ole power button. Not good, keeps messing with my file system because it was not umounted properly. Any suggestions where to look?
