Bug Description

On my machine (WhiteBox biostar T-force nvidia 6100/410) 6.10 shutdown and restart fetures do not turn off or restart the computer.

In regards to the shutsdown it leaves the power left applied to the computer the restart leaves the machine hanging with a blank screen no post.

In both cases the enduser is left to hardpower the machine down or hard reset to restart the machine.

Downgraded back to 6.06.1 the kernel included with that version allows shut down/restart to work with out issue.

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 - http://www.ubuntu.com/testing . 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!
