I checked, and the settings are just as you quoted.
However, while browsing the SuSE support database I
noticed they recommend including the kernel option
"apm=real-mode-poweroff" or simply "apm=power-off" for
multi-processor machines (which the ht-enabled systems
are in some way).
I set the kernel option "apm=real-mode-poweroff", and
for the last two days shutdown worked. Might be just
the luck of the draw, of course, since it used to work
about 30% of the time. I'll keep the list updated...
