    Bump.

    I assume that this still hasn't been resolved? It's a bit annoying not knowing the right time to hard-power-down when restarting.

    Karmic reboots fine on the mac mini. Add this to your kernel boot options:

    Code:
    reboot=pci
    That did the magic for me.

    The Karmic installer won't do this, so you have to remember to either hit ESC and modify the boot line or just shut down, but it's easy to set this once you get your system running. Test it out on one boot, then reboot and if it works for you, make your changes to the grub config file. Put your changes in the automagic kernels area to make them stay after you update your kernel.

    AFAIK i did test that on my mac mini (late 2009), so that's strange. In any case, I should mention that lucid doesn't have this issue.
