    I know, I have seen this before in the list.

    I did quite a lot of reboots. I could reproduce it in the pre4 kernel.
    My last try at the kernels. When I coppied the pre8 .config in the pre4
    tree, and remade the kernel I got the same problem.

    So after quite a bit of fiddeling I blame it on a non fully functional
    ACPI so I switched back to the APM and the shutdown -h is functioning as
    it should.

    Attached are the configuration files of the 2.4.18-pr4 kernel with a
    working and with a diff to the not working kernel (working meaning yes
    or no powerdown).

    I can not find anything that indicates a possibility.
    I switched back to APM and it is working. with nvidia drivers and 4front

    Reason for switching to 2.4.19-pre8 is stability, I had random freezes.
    I did not have them again in this series.
