nope... and it's exactly the same on my PC. I'm using kernel 2.0.13 and
this
*NEVER* worked on my pentium system. In fact, that's not exact. It
sometimes
shut down the screen (because there's no more video signal), it rarely
reboots,
and it almost always lock up. I've no idea why, but it's maybe in the
arch/i386/kernel/process.c hard_reset_now function. If nobody did
investigate,
I'll take a look at it

PS : before everybody asks, APM *IS* disabled everywhere (kernel + BIOS)
and
I already tried to play with BIOS settings...
