Mandriva Not shutting off all the way
I have mandriva one 2008 spring (or whatever it is) on an hp ze4800 laptop. It is running off an external USB 100GB hard drive. (btw, are there usb 1.1 AND usb 2.0 cords, or does the cord not matter?) In the bootloader section, all the ACPI/APIC/APIC local options are enabled. Suspend and Hibernate aren't really of any concern to me, but they don't work either, and it would be nice to suspend a laptop. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The system gets all the way down to "halting..." (when shutting down). Then, it literally halts. It doesn't even turn the fan or screen off. If it helps, I have 1GB ram, 128MB allocated video ram, 2.12GHZ processor. If it's something wrong with the bios, I'm not sure there's much i can do, since there are very few bios options available to me.
