    Shutdown computer

    I have a computer which softoff doesnt want to work on, I dont know if it is just my settings or if I am just doing something drastically wrong?

    Softoff is turned on in the bios. The motherboard is a Soltek SL75-DRV4

    After windows98 shutdown where it would normally turnoff a single click is made and a prompt is displayed, this is where the computer hangs.

    To test if it was windows or not I installed Red Hat and the same problem occurs when it shuts down.

    I have replaced the original power supply and the motherboard(same model).

    There is no network card in the computer.

    If any body has heard of a similiar problem to this before or has a solution please post.

    see my thread about shutting down 98. Not sure what's happening in Linux tho... maybe try turning the "Softoff" option off?
