Ok. Then at least in part the kernel behavior is either
intersecting with a BIOS bug, a bad reboot script that calls halt instead,
or a driver that is scribbling on the wrong register. There is
nothing in that code path that should remove the power.

Ok. Until I have something to go on I don't have a clue where to start.
