Strange - mine works. Either with APM and 'apm=power-off' on the command
line, or with ACPI and a hack to work around the incompetence of Abit's
BIOS engineers.

Me: "There's a one-char typo in your ACPI bytecode which prevents it from
working. This is the fix...."
Abit: "You can work around that by turning off ACPI support in the BIOS
Me: "But that just disables it, and makes it continue to not work. To make
it work, it needs to be enabled - but there's a simple typo which
prevents it from working."
Abit: <silence>

Sometimes it amazes me just how stupid some people can be and still
actually keep their job.
