    1818This command properly makes sure the power off routine is in memory before stopping the file systems.  Make sure you are using the latest version of acpistat.exe.
     20== Systems with ACPI from Award ==
     22There is a known problem with the ACPI provided by Award. You can determine if your BIOS has this ACPI in it by opening a command window and typing the following command:
     24iasl -g
     26You do not need to have ACPI.PSD installed to use this command. The command will output a bunch of lines to the screen which will look something like this:
     28ACPI: RSDP F8CA0 14 (v0 VIAK8M)
     29ACPI: RSDT 7FFF3040 2C (v1 VIAK8M AWRDACPI 42302E31 AWRD 0)
     30ACPI: FACP 7FFF30C0 74 (v1 VIAK8M AWRDACPI 42302E31 AWRD 0)
     31ACPI: DSDT 7FFF3180 5139 (v1 VIAK8M AWRDACPI 1000 MSFT 100000E)
     32ACPI: FACS 7FFF0000 40
     33ACPI: APIC 7FFF8300 5A (v1 VIAK8M AWRDACPI 42302E31 AWRD 0)
     35If the line which starts with "ACPI: DSDT" has the string "AWRDACPI" in it, then your system has the Award ACPI in it. If your system has the Award ACPI in it, then you do not need to open a ticket. I already know about the problem and I am working on an fix for it.
