    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...
