ACPI issues (maybe)

I am experiencing some weird behavior with my Toshiba Satellite
M115-S3094 Laptop. I cannot power off the laptop with shutdown or
reboot. Both go through the steps of shutting down the machine but it
never powers off. I've tried setting hw.acpi.disable_on_poweroff to 1
to no avail. I have to press the power button for 5 or so seconds for
it to power off. So I've been using 'shutdown -h ...' which lets me
tap the power button to power off the laptop but this often leaves the
speakers beeping throughout the shutdown process.
When doing a 'shutdown -p ...' I do see a message like "Powering off
via ACPI" or some similar text flash on the screen before the LCD is
blanked, but it isn't completely powered off.
So I tried adding "options ACPI_DEBUG" to my kernel config and rebuilt
my kernel. This left me with a clock that ran at about 1 minute per 1
second of real time. Oddly none of the sysctl nodes for hw.acpi were
available with this kernel option added. I don't know if this is due
to acpi being loaded as a module or what.
My dmesg can be found here:
My uname is:

Notice the time is way off. It's currently Fri Mar 2 20:37 EST 2007.
If there is any more information I can give let me know.
