Fedora 13 - Shutdown works, but Restart Freezes??

I installed Fedora 13 on a Gateway E2000 and have found that restart/reboot 
freezes, but a shutdown does a full power down correctly.

By default goes to the graphical screen, the same for both, but with 
shutdown, it says shutting down and then powers off. The restart shows the 
restarting message, but then stops responding. No keyboard lights change, 
no CTRL-ALT-DEL, nothing. Only a forced power off gets the machine going.

Tried it from a terminal window same results.
Tried reboot -f same results.
Even loaded busybox and used busybox reboot -f

Don't see anything in the log files...

It doesn't come up with an error on the reboot, so it seems to be shutting 
down correctly, but just not doing the final reboot process.
