    Also did you go to line 249 of

    /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit and modify line 249 from

    [ ! -d /proc/acpi ] && modprobe apm #v406
    and type in the line to say

    [ ! -d /proc/acpi ] && modprobe apm power_off=1 #v406
    also. With these older Laptops. You sometimes have to jump through a few hoops to get things trotting along succesfully.

    Problem solved

    Problem solved, but I don't know how. I did all the things suggested in the forum, rebooted, and no luck. I decided to just live with it, when the next shut down, it turned off fine, and has been turning off since.

    The only thing I can figure is that a restart didn't get the changes into effect, but the all power off did.

    Thanks to everyone who helped me on this problem!!
