Problems shuting down Gentoo with kernel 2.6.29

I updated my laptop a few days ago and suddenly it failed to shutdown correctly, it powered down but without finishing the shutdown process. Today, while reading the spanish users mailing list I found the solution.

In /etc/conf.d/alsasound, set:

UNLOAD_ON_STOP=”no”

KILLPROC_ON_STOP=”no”

This fixed the problem. Here is the original thread
