My Debian wheezy (64-bit) won't fully shut down. What I mean by this is that when I select "
Shut Down..." from the menu the screen goes blank but the power button remains lit and front fan keeps working. Only after I hold down the power button for a 5 sec or so it actually shuts down fully...
Did some googling and usually power managment is blamed in these kind of situations. Here are some suspicious messages related to power managment in my
/var/log/messages, in order of appearance:
kernel: [ 0.000000] ACPI Warning: FADT (revision 5) is longer than ACPI 2.0 version, truncating length 268 to 244 (20110623/tbfadt-288) kernel: [ 0.010862] x2apic not enabled, IRQ remapping init failed kernel: [ 0.485956] ACPI FADT declares the system doesn't support PCIe ASPM, so disable it kernel: [ 0.494932] [Firmware Bug]: ACPI: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored kernel: [ 0.546125] PCI: Using host bridge windows from ACPI; if necessary, use "pci=nocrs" and report a bug kernel: [ 0.747176] ERST: Table is not found! kernel: [ 0.747177] GHES: HEST is not enabled!
then there is few like the following two:

There is nothing in the
syslog that relates to shutdown (in the kern.log there is point which I can identify as startup but messages preceding that point aren't related to shutdown. syslog doesn't seem to have any intresting messages at all). Here is the few messages from
messages at the time I did last restart (early this morning):

BTW there is also VirtualBox installed and following message is in the log
kernel: [ 38.497835] warning: VirtualBox uses 32-bit capabilities (legacy support in use) but I don't think thats really the issue...
So I'm looking for suggestions how to fix this. Should I update some driver or update BIOS or...? I'm really not an Linux power user so please be as specific as possible when additional information is needed or when you suggest some solution.
