    Make sure that you enabled the ACPI support in that kernel. I'm almost sure it is the problem.

    As mentioned above. When you are left at the "power off" text after the system is halted, is generally caused by not having acpi or apm support compiled into your kernel. Another cause would it not being supported by your BIOS (not likely nowadays) or it being turned off in the BIOS.

    Make sure that if you do have power management capabilties in your kernel that aren't booting with something such as noacpi from your bootloader.
