Odd ACPI shutdown and power off issue

I'm using 6.2-R on a Dell PE400SC.
I recently enabled "Remote Wake Up" (Wake on LAN) in BIOS. Sending a
magic packet to the powered down PC will power it up and it boots
normally. However, now if I attempt a shutdown and power off using
"halt -p" or "shutdown -p now" I get a reboot. Disabling Remote Wake
Up reverts back to the expected behavior.
I've searched and found the sysctl knob "hw.acpi.disable_on_poweroff"
as a possible solution, but sysctl gives me "unknown oid".
