I have a similar problem...
I will try the ACPI thing to see if it works, but my problem is that I have a laptop (HP Pavillion tx 1410) and when I restart (and possibly also when I shut down) it hangs just before it shuts off. I tried hitting escape for verbose, but the computer was frozen. I tried doing it sooner, but I got the same problem. i'll try it immediately this time to see where it hangs. Is there a log I can look at to help figure out why my computer is getting confused?
