Yeah, same here... although I was thinking an earlier version of 1.6P did
power off my Inspiron 8000. I notice that after doing a shutdown -p now
and getting the "syncing disks..." message, it hangs there, but I can
tap the power button to turn off the computer. (Unlike when NetBSD is up
and running, where I have to hold down the power button for 5 seconds if
I really wanted to power off).
