Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6.15-25-k7

My motherboard is an A7S333, with an Athlon XP 1600+. The linux-k7-2.6.15-23 kernel was turning off my computer normally. But when I updated to linux-k7-2.6.25-25 it no longer turns off the PC automatically, I have to press the power button every time.

I think is a problem with ACPI. When I try to shutdown my PC, Ubuntu
does all normal things, the HDs shutdown, but fans and monitor
doesn't. The last message ''will now halt" remains there until I press
the Power Button.
There is a guy with the same problem here:

The kernel 2.6.15-23 was shutting down correctly. Only when I updated
to 2.6.7.15-25 (and 26 too) I started to get these problems.

I don't know if it is a bug or a misconfiguration, but it's a strange thing.

Thanks for your answer.

Beginning with the Hardy Heron 8.04 development cycle, all open Ubuntu kernel bugs need to be reported against the "linux" kernel package. We are automatically migrating this linux-source-2.6.15 kernel bug to the new "linux" package. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make this transition. Also, if you would be interested in testing the upcoming Intrepid Ibex 8.10 release, it is available at http://www.ubuntu.com/testing . Please let us know your results. Thanks!
