You could try this, open a terminal (Applications>Accessories>Terminal)
Then type or paste

gksudo gedit /etc/modules Add the following line, then save:

apm power_off=1then

gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst (where the l is a lower case L). Find the line that start with "kernel" (under ## ## End Default Options ## section) and add this onto the end, no carriage return, all on the same line which probably wraps over:

acpi=off apm=power_offthen save.

sudo update-grub then restart.
If that does not work you could undo the changes you made and try adding
acpi=force to the kernel line (where you added acpi=off apm=power_off)
