Power off computer hangs up
Puppy 5.0 installed on Toshiba laptop P3 500, 392 mb ram, 6 gb HD. When I try to power off computer it progresses to "requesting power off" then shows "system halted" and stays at that point until I do hard shut down.
does anyone have a solution?

Check in the BIOS if there's an option to power off upon software request.0 + 1 = 1 != 2 <> 3 != 4 ...
Until the camel can pass though the eye of the needle.

Ran into the same on my Puppy Installs on older Bios.
Open up /boot/grub/menu.lst in Puppy Rox File Manager.
Go to the kernel line for Puppy .About 3rd line down.

Then APM May be the culprit. Check on the thread I will post below. The author gives his fix in that thread.

I'm off for the next 2 days and leave that laptop at work, so won't be able to try the latest advice till Tuesday. Thanks for the help.

It's geek to me
I tried following the link listed (in murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=46934]Puppy Linux Discussion Forum :: View topic - Puppy 4.3 APM won't power off [solved][/url]), but got lost in the geek speak.
I opened edit, file open file system, boot, grub, menu.lst, but didn't see anything that looked like what the link was talking about. I added the acpi=force, but it didn't solve the problem.
Was that the right section to be in? If not, where and how do I get to the right place to enter acpi=force?
