I do seem to remember discussion that you edited the rc.sysconfig files ? if that is correct - which edits did you make to which files? would any of your edits have an effect on the shutdown scripts?.
First, there is no such file as rc.sysconfig in the system.
Second, if as I imagine you are referring to the sysinit scripts here is the answer:
the Openbox versions published officially use the same sysinit version as the official version without any change. Any change done on the halt
file has been performed during test phase, never
for the final. Tto be precise, the test was to switch with an option from a KDE available at that moment, which has also been changed later, which change I did follow very closely
You repeat for X time that only the Openbox version suffers this issue, whereas along this thread 2 persons have reported to get the same issue in Gnome
: I also quoted the first one who reported as a direct answer to one of your former posts. You look like you didn't read, or didn't see what is written.
Some machines do have
buggy BIOS and buggy ACPI, and even a lot of machines, never mind the brand of the machine.
