PC ran fc21. Poweroff? realy poweroff. Fresh install of fc22 and trashing all raid volumes as fc22 does not have any respect for previous users. Raid 1 is a common config. FC22 installer (live and net) crashes when you have raid volumes.

Now the next weird thing. The pc won't power off. It shuts down but does not power off. How to solve? Get Suse? Get FC21 back and wait for FC23??

In my opinion FC22 is the Windows Vista of the linux world.

Try halt -p. If it shuts down fully, then ACPI is broken for your BIOS again. Then you will need to append noapic etc. to your kernel command line.

No FC22 is broken, not my bios. Remember it worked on FC21, so FC22 is broken! If I login and issue poweroff at the command line, the pc powers off. If I don't login but use the gnome poweroff button on the upper right corner the pc gets into coma. No networking, so remote ssh won't help. But also no wake up via the network.

That's what I meant. ACPI support in kernel breaks very often. It is probably doing halt. Halt shuts down all but power; then you press the power button.

Adding noapic or noacpi to the kernel command line does not solve the problem.

Linux is out for many years, Windows too. Windows, every version in my 30 years of using pc's, has never had a problem with powering off. Linux does sometimes, on the same pc. Blaming the bios manufacturers is thus not fair.

If I'm logged in and then poweroff via the gnome top right poweroff thing it does poweroff. If I'm not logged in and then poweroff via the gnome top right poweroff thing it does put the pc in coma.

FC21 was ok FC22 is broken.

You misunderstand. Anyway, your kernel ACPI is misbehaving. For proof, read your dmesg -xTH and search for acpi and ACPI (or any other error). I believe you will see something about not supported or such.
