Hi Pete. Tried that after your post. First booted up as far as GDM, then 
shutdown, but machine still refused to shutdown completely. Next booted up to 
init3, logged in as user, then used "halt" to shut down, but still no joy.

During the last 2-3 hours I've been scouring logs. Dmesg, acpid, and messages.

Ok here goes.  I booted up FC5 with kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 (the original 
one). After all the stuff that ends up in dmesg various daemons services are 
started. The first one to start with this kernel is "Acpi" as below.
Starting Acpi Daemon           OK

This is verified by one entry in /var/log/acpid for today, even though I've 
booted other kernels today, but obviously because the acpid wasn't started 
for these other kernels, no entries are there. See below.

/var/log/acpid:
[Thu Jan 11 16:45:57 2007] starting up
[Thu Jan 11 16:45:57 2007] 1 rule loaded
[Thu Jan 11 16:46:21 2007] client connected from 2171[68:68]
[Thu Jan 11 16:46:21 2007] 1 client rule loaded

There was one entry also for yesterday, and the day before when I booted with 
this kernel, but I have rebooted using different kernels many times over the 
last couple of days, but with no entries in this log. 

Moving on to /var/log/messages. the first bit below is when booting with the 
2.6.15 kernel (the one that shutsdown ok), the one I'm booted into at the mo.

Jan 11 16:45:29 localhost syslogd 1.4.1: restart.
Jan 11 16:45:30 localhost kernel: klogd 1.4.1, log source = /proc/kmsg 
started.

4.1.0-3)) #1 Tue Mar 14 15:48:33 EST 2006
<snip>

Jan 11 16:45:38 localhost kernel: Kernel command line: ro root=LABEL=/1
Jan 11 16:45:38 localhost kernel: Local APIC disabled by BIOS -- you can

The first line after the <snip> is the relevant one. Compare this with the 
output booting with a later kernel, as below.

Jan 11 15:49:45 localhost syslogd 1.4.1: restart.
Jan 11 15:49:46 localhost kernel: klogd 1.4.1, log source = /proc/kmsg

Hat 4.1.1-1)) #1 Tue Aug 8 15:30:55 EDT 2006
<snip>
Jan 11 15:49:52 localhost kernel: ACPI: Disabling ACPI support

Jan 11 15:49:54 localhost kernel: Local APIC disabled by BIOS -- you can

The first line after the <snip> here shows "ACPI: Disabling ACPI support", and 
this ( and I'm convinced after some updates to FC5) is the same for all 
kernels later than the 2.6.15 one.

Any Guru's out there that know whats going on here?

I'm personally convinced that this problem started after some updates to FC5, 
which are only affecting kernels later than my 2.6.15 one. Which update is 
anybodies guess.

Aaron has the same problem with FC6, but I presume the kernel that was 
installed, when he installed FC6 was a lot later version than my 2.6.15 one 
which shutsdown ok on FC5.

The menu item "Services" shows "Acpid" as running, in the status box for the 
2.6.15 kernel, but for any later kernel the status box is empty, although 
"Acpid" is on "Services" list, and shows a description of it. Trying to start 
it for the later kernels, I get a confirmation box saying that it's started, 
but still nothing in the status box, so obviously it's lying.

This is a frustrating problem, especially as I have no idea as to which update 
has changed the behaviour of later kernels than the 2.6.15 one. Alright it's 
no big deal to have to press, and hold the start button on the machine to 
switch it off, but I shouldn't have to.

Nigel.
