Comment 4 for bug 43961

I get the same problem on my Sony Vaio VGN-S460 with kernel linux-image-2.6.15-23-386 version 2.6.15-23.35. On shutdown, the last message is "Will now halt" and it doesn't power off.

This must be a regression since it worked fine a while ago - somewhere around Beta 1/2 this started.
