I run MyWolf-008 live CD. Each time it boots I can press F2 and enter the boot command puppy acpi=force and puppy will shut down properly.

It there a way I can instruct the LIve-CD to do this automatically each time I boot?

While I don't have that particular puplet right at hand, I would say you can modify the isolinux.cfg file in the ISO image to do that. I'm guessing it says, in part:
Quote:
label puppy
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.gz pmedia=cd
You need to add acpi=force to the append line:
Quote:
label puppy
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.gz pmedia=cd acpi=force
Then, burn a new CD from the modified ISO image.

Let's see if this gets you far enough to solve the problem before saying more.

Added: I just downloaded wolfe-008.iso, checked the md5sum, used iso-master to edit it, as described above, producing a wolfe-008m.iso, (with a new md5sum,) burned this to CD, and tested it on another computer with the power-off problem. It worked.

Great! Been waiting for that since Puppy 216.

I installed isomaster in dpup from the Lenny repository. Easy peasy.

EDIT: I modified Puppy 431 Retro, which runs on my old 600MHz 256MB machine.
