    Shouldn't it be possible to just shut off suspend-on-halt with:

    set6x86 -p 0xC2 -c 0x08 ??

    I tried that a moment ago, and it made no difference. If this is actually
    a parameter that must be set at boot, I'll try that a bit later this
    evening.

    Thanks for the pointer.

    Steve
