Well as you can see from the ACPI error messages in dmesg (which is 
included in my previous email) a lot of stuff isn't working.

But more than that, if I do "shutdown -p now" the computer does halt, 
and then it switches off, but in a strange way - the fans are still 
going, all the lights are on, but the video card stops working, and the 
on/off button does nothing, even if I hold it down for several seconds. 
  I have to press the reset button for it to start again.

Best Stephen
