I was never able to narrow it down with Ubuntu, but with Fedora Core

make sure the module is never loaded, the laptop runs fine, but I
can't shut it down - I have to reboot and hit the power switch as it's

In 32-bits, everything runs fine, so that's what it's going to college
with.  The whole thing is most puzzling.  Now I understand why the
guide book for our brave new world of free / open source software is
called "The Cathedral and the Bizarre!"  8-)

You should probably file a bug on that, so they can fix it..
