I used shutdown -p now, it just does the same as shutdown -h now.
Does anyone know how to fix it?

Thanks
Sam.

Do you have an ATX or an AT power supply?  Did you enable APM in your
kernel config or /etc/rc.conf?  See /etc/defaults/rc.conf.

Yup, I got this line in my /etc/rc.conf file:
apm_enable="YES"

I have tried  apmd_enable="YES" as well, it doesn't work either.

ps. I using  a ATX power supply case. Motherboard is gigabyte 2000+.

Thanks

there is no apm appear in the demsg either.
The following is the device config in the GENERIC:

device          apm0    at nexus? disable flags 0x20 # Advanced Power
Management

How can I change this setting so that apm device get enabled?

Thanks
SAm.

Or... (recalling from my head)

In the file /boot/kernel.conf, specify "en apm" to enable to
compiled-but-disabled APM.

1. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace powers down my machine

I have a new PC running Red Hat 9. Much to my annoyance, whenever I hit
Control-Alt-Backspace (which is about every 10 minutes, since I'm an Emacs
user) the machine powers itself off quite abruptly. This is disconcerting,
to say the least.

The closest thing to a fix I could find was the advice to set the DontZap
option in /etc/X11/XFConfig. I did this but it doesn't help.  Any ideas?
