    Help powering down with mandrake


    I'm using Mandrake 10.0 and when I want to shutdown my conputer it just close linux and show 'Power Down' but it doesn't power down at all. I had Fedora Core 2 installed before and it did the full power down. What can I do to make Mandrake power down?

    Edit you /etc/lilo.conf file and change the ACPI to ACPI=force. Then run the command

    Code:
    lilo -v
    That should work.
