    power down

    Again with Slackware 9.0
    After I put ``# shutdown -h now'', the last message is ``Power down''.
    But actually the power is not down.
    I tested on RedHat, power is down after the last message (same machine).
    How could I solve this on Slackware?

    Tiresome look at the APCI subset. I also think you will need the APCID but im not sure. That or you could look at APM, they both can do it.

    Thanks squid,
    It seems to have kernel re-compiled.
    APM=power_down.
