If you know that your computer will have shutdown issues, one possible solution is to add "acpi=force" as an extra boot parameter when prompted towards the end of installation of VL 5.8 Std. This action inserts appends in the lilo.conf file.

There is also a kernel default parameter set in VL:  CONFIG_APM_REAL_MODE_POWER_OFF 

This is supposed to work around some buggy bioses and it is enabled as default in VL.   However, I found the default setting *prevented* full shutdown on my hardware.   A shutdown would turn off the hard drive motor, then sit without  powering down the machine.  Recompiling with this set to 'off' allowed full power down.
