uhci or ehci hangs the computer on shutdown!!

Everytime I try to shutdown/halt my computer, it hangs when it's supposed to close down the ehci and uhci. It ends with me turning it straight off, and no umounting... This is pretty annoying, but I don't know what to do? Can you give me some advice or tips?

I'm running Mandrake 10.0 CE - kernel 2.6.3-4mdk

I remember I had this problem when I tried 10.0 CE.
It went away when I disabled hotplug. Mandrake and my hardware deem to have problems with hotplug: It works better with 10.1Official and a slew of updates, but it is not yet perfect.

So, try disabling hotplug, you can always mount/umount devices manually.

How to disable hotplug? I think it was Mandrake Control Centre -> system -> services, but I cannot check as am at work.

Hope this helps.

I'll try this when I shutdown my computer tonight.

Merry Christmas
