My computer doesn't power off when I try to shutdown or reboot it, I'm forced to press the power button.
At shutdown, a single _ is displayed (sometimes blinking, sometimes not).
At reboot, two similar lines are displayed, which say
watchdog watchdog0: watchdog did not stop!. These two lines remain for around 0.25 seconds, then the screen turns off but not the computer itself (there's still the "powered on" light).
When the commands are done while in desktop, it may happen that the screen freezes on the tty1 (with the ouput of X server and so), thus none of the cases above happens. I assume it isn't worth anything, but for the sake of precision, you know.
The reboot case may happen at shutdown (and the other way around), I didn't test it so I can't say for sure.
sudo shutdown -h 0 sudo shutdown -P 0 sudo shutdown now sudo reboot sudo systemctl poweroff sudo systemctl reboot

I installed Arch from scratch (standard way, I mean I haven't installed a custom distribution based on it or executed Architect), so it may be a module I'm missing. At least I hope it is this simple.
Don't hesitate to ask questions about relevant things I should include.
