My Computer also stops saying "Will now halt" -> harddisk off, wlan semi off (Blinks like no driver loaded), fan up, display up, lights up

ubuntu version is egdy eft with linux-image-2.6.17-5-686

with the dapper kernel there was no problem shutting down the system

i have the same problem. and i am quite sure this is not a problem caused by motherboard, or power distributor.
coz i have installed previous dapper, edgy and they all worked fine when it came to system shutdown, no power-button-press interference.
My guess it might be a bug in kernel or o breakage in Nvidia official driver. Just guess.
Ubuntu version is 7.04, motherboard 845PE, too old? VGA: MSI fx5200, (rubbish, even no fan on it)
any one has solved this problem?.

The 18 month support period for Edgy Eft 6.10 has reached its end of life. As a result, we are closing the linux-source-2.6.17 Edgy Eft kernel task. However, development has already began for the upcoming Intrepid Ibex 8.10 release. It would be helpful if you could test the upcoming release and verify if this is still an issue - . If the issue still exists, please update this report by changing the Status of the "linux" task from "Incomplete" to "New". We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make this transition. Thanks!
