But it doesn't seem to have any effect on my Fedora 17 x86_64 system.
When I press the power button, the system immediately powers down. I
don't think KDE isn't even involved in the process. I have not tried to
do the experiment with any unsaved files open. But I have a feeling that
I'll lose them.
I believe acpid is getting in the way.
rpm -e acpid
and reboot, and see if the problem persists or not. If not, you're
(I might have to flex some provenpackager muscle there if the maintainer
doesn't act soon)
