    What do you mean 'manually'? Is it that linux shuts down, but the computer doesn't power down (so you have to push the button), or that linux will not shut down, and you have to push the button?

    For the second you may want to try
    Code:
     shutdown -h now
    as root in a terminal.

    For you first one you may need acpi confugured to shut down and power down.

    Do you have any pcmcia cards? If not you should disable the PCMCIA service compleatly, you have different ways you can do this, either get Redhats graphical tools to do it, or use the command:
    Code:
    chkconfig --level off
