    I am not so sure about this being a distribution problem. My system is a
    FIC PA-2012 (VIA VP3 chips, no hardware monitoring features) running a
    severely modified RedHat 5.2. With kernel 2.0.36 shutdown -h turns off
    the power but no 2.2.x or 2.3.x kernel does. I have not been able to
    isolate the point where this feature stopped working on my system but I
    think it was somewhere between 2.1.50 and 2.1.80 - a looong time ago.
