Wanting mmodificare the menu of the bootloader of Fedora 20 XFCE to make possible the restart and shutdown PC at startup instead of a distro on the PC itself, I modified the file / etc/grub.d/40_custom inserting rows

menuentry "Reboot the PC" { reboot }

menuentry "Halt" { halt }

so, after giving the command

grub2-mkconfig-o / boot/grub2/grub.cfg

restart the PC the boot loader menu has two new items: "Reboot the PC" and "Halt" selecting "Restart PC" actually the PC restarts, but selecting "Halt" the PC will not turn off ... appears on the screen the writing ACPI shutdown failed and the computer freezes so, without shutting down ... How do I put in the boot loader menu of Fedora 20? IS there a chance to turn off the computer or does any alternative options exist?

The title of this question is misleading; you know how to add the menu item, it just doesn't work as expected. I suggest you edit to make the issue more clear.

Try using halt --no-apm as suggested in . If that doesn't work, the problem is probably a faulty ACPI implementation on your system, or a problem with GRUB itself - not a configuration issue. Check for relevant firmware updates, and then consider filing either a bug against GRUB or a support ticket with your hardware vendor.
