Subject description: Although Puppy 4.2.1 can shut down my old Dell Optiplex GX1 computer, the new 4.3.1 can not.
 

The 4.2.1 version of Puppy Linux can shut down my old computer Dell Optiplex GX1 with 512 MB RAM, 80 GB Hard disk cleanly. However, 4.3.1 version can not do it properly and I have to manually press the power button to power off the computer. I tried Barry's suggestion to incorporate the script into /etc/rc.d/rc.update file but that also failed to solve the problem.

Hmmm...might try some of the suggestions here? Post back whether or not they are helpful, please... Cool If they were, then perhaps it will help others; if not then perhaps we can figure out why... Cool

Thanks Steve_s for the reply. I tried some of the suggestions and these are the results:

1. "wmpoweroff" command from terminal gave "system halted" message and the computer hang there.
2. I altered /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit through Greany Text editor line no. 249 from:[ ! -d /proc/acpi ] && modprobe apm #v406
to:
[ ! -d /proc/acpi ] && modprobe apm power_off=1 #v406.

Saved the altered file, rebooted.

After this change, computer shut down nicely and very quickly but on restarting flashed an error message that the computer was not properly shut down and have to wait for 30 seconds for nornal boot-up.

I then implemented another suggestion:
Booted Puppy linux 4.3.1 with "acpi=off" boot option.

Every boot-up and shut down thereafter was flawless.

Puppy Linux is very valuable for old computers like mine with limited resources as it is very fast and resource-friendly. I am facing someproblems with it regarding file manager operations and cs4236b sound card configuration but hope to solve them in time. Thanks .
Code:
solved

acpi=off !! D*mn, why didn't I remember that.....solved
my 4.3 "system halted" hangup on pc perfectly.
Added to kernel line in grub menu.lst.

Edit;

Worked fine about a half dozen times, then went back
to hang up again.
