This are very good numbers, which I've expected.

This should be easily solved.

I point on your distro's startup scripts. They only look if apm is enabled
but _NOT ACPI...

Have a look into /etc/init.d/halt (taken from SuSE 7.3, LSB standard).

case "$0" in
message="The system will be halted immediately."
case `/bin/uname -m` in
if test -e /proc/apm -o -e /proc/acpi ; then <----!!!!
command="halt -p"
read cmdline < /proc/cmdline
case "$cmdline" in
command="halt -p" ;;
command="halt -p"

Expand the marked line with acpi like above.
