[opensuse] 10.2 fails to auto-power-off; 10.1 was ok. bug or misconfiguration?

i've successfully updated my 10.1 box to 10.2.

on 10.1, when i,

shutdown -h now

the box halted services then powered-off automatically.

on 10.2 all services etc are 'halted', but i only get as far as,

...
skipped services in runlevel 0: nfs
stty: shutdown input: unable to perform all requested operations

and the system hangs there. poweroff further requires me to
push/toggle the power button.

again, this is *different* behavior that the same box/setup with opensuse 10.1.

googling, my suspicion is this may be related to acpi/apm, but i'm not
certain. lots of questions raised online, but no definitive answers
that i've found.

given that ACPI/APM is an "either-or" *not* 'both' selection, i've
setup my box as,
