I used to suffer that, with FC3, I think.  For one of my computers I had
to change APM/ACPI BIOS settings, and play with kernel parameters
related to power.  Fedora would reboot instead of shutdown, but the halt
command in GRUB would shutdown the box.  There's different ways of doing
a powerdown.

Have a read through:  

(This box runs FC6, my others run FC4 & FC5, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
