This needs some ACPI changes, not a blocker for 2.02

On my X201 it happens as well. It's actually a shutdown but some device wakes the computer just few seconds later. We need to shutdown thema as well.

If I try to reproduce this issue on my desktop computer (ASUS P5P41T-LE motherboard, Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7500  @ 2.93GHz, 6 GB of RAM). I CANT reproduce this at all on my desktop, it works as intended on my desktop, it shutdowns fine on "halt" from the CLI.

This problem is only present on my laptop (ThinkPad T510).

Every time I turn on my laptop and GRUB2 appears, I type 'c' for CLI and then type 'halt' [ENTER]. GRUB2 would reboot my laptop instead of shutting it down.

My laptop is a ThinkPad T510 4313CTO, I've tried upgrading the BIOS to latest (1.49) but same thing.

GRUB2 version is:

[diego@(none) ~]$ grub-install --version
grub-install (GRUB) 2.00~beta3
[diego@(none) ~]$

My distribution is Arch Linux x86_64.

I can reproduce this issue all the time on the laptop (ThinkPad T510).

Please let me know if you need more information. Thanks.
