F16 won't power off after shutdown

This problem is because of some bug in kernel. To get rid of this problem please edit  file name "/etc/default/grub" and add power_off=1to  GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX like below.

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rd.md=0 rd.lvm=0 rd.dm=0  KEYTABLE=us quiet SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 rhgb rd.luks=0 LANG=en_US.UTF-8 power_off=1"


OR


this problem only seems to be in 3.1.X.X kernel. You can upgrade your kernel to 3.2.X.X to get rid of it.
