Check that ACPI is on in the BIOS setup and that there's no kernel boot
parameter turning off ACPI.

What is the last message? Compare that with the sequence in /etc/rc.0/

took me a while to figure this out.. in reality, what I have is /etc/rc0.d
does this tell me the last 2 things to happen are:
S60umountroot
S90halt

it looks like S90 looks for apcupsd/ups-monitor, which i have...
and this:

# apctest

2008-07-23 09:18:57 apctest 3.14.4 (18 May 2008) debian
Checking configuration ...
Attached to driver: usb
sharenet.type = DISABLE
cable.type = USB_CABLE

You are using a USB cable type, so I'm entering USB test mode
mode.type = USB_UPS
Setting up the port ...
apctest FATAL ERROR in device.c at line 70
Unable to create UPS lock file.
If apcupsd or apctest is already running,
please stop it and run this program again.
apctest error termination completed

# /etc/init.d/apcupsd stop

apcupsd.


now what..

does this mean anything?

Not to me, but somebody else might have an idea. Did you try looking
through the bugs for the respective package?

ok, I rebooted again and here are the last messages on the screen:

Unmounting local filesystems...done
Stopping UPS power management-warning, failed to kill pid 3651:no such process
( 3651 was apcupsd )

1 pid not killed
no process in pidfile /var/run/acpupsd.pid found running
(that file had 3651 in it before I shut down)

rm: cannot remove /var/run/apcupsd.pid READ Only filesystem
will now restart
[9485.842679] restarting system
[9485.842718] machine restart


and there it sat until I hit the reset button.

I do have an APC UPS on my system, backups office 600, connected via USB
cable.

http://bugs.debian.org/<package>

If you are pretty sure it is a bug and it is not listed there then
please consider reporting it (tip: reportbug).

In /boot/grub/menu.lst, the '## default kernel options' section. Mine is
# kopt=root=/dev/sda1 ro noapic.

Read the menu.lst manual.

Perhaps you can install another kernel and try it.

What are these supposed to do? Just curious, I don't think they do any
harm.
