Are you sure this "will" work? Sorry about my heretic question, but I
remember myself I bought two identical A7V motherboards for our lab
year's ago, both driven by Windows 2000 and later Windows XP and
FreeBSD. On box never had problems being switched off via push-button or
shutdown -p, the other box never performed this task! Even not on
Windows. Both boxes used the same BIOS versions, same CPU, same
peripherial hardware ... But I never examined the board revision ...
