    I'd say your problem is more of a distro issue,
    in that the method you are using to shutdown
    is not actually requesting "poweroff".

    That last mess above ("System halted.") comes from kernel_halt(),
    rather than the expected message ("Power down.") from kernel_power_off().

    So, try using the "poweroff" command instead of "halt",
    or try using "halt -p". If neither of those work,
    then edit /etc/init.d/halt and hardcode the "-p" parameter
    inside there onto the "halt" command line(s).

    I had to do that frequently back in the Redhat/Fedora days.
    I'm sure they have a nice GUI for it somewhere,
    but at the time it was simpler to just edit the script.
