Hi, I'm Murphy, and if your mobo does not shutdown with the 4-sec
power-button press, then I've been visiting your mobo's hardware labs
while they implemeneted the ATX specs. :)

More seriously: If that functionality is broken, I'd go hunting the
motherboard/chipset manufacturer. And if the system really hangs that
bad due to hardware bugs, having a different soft-off/resume/suspend
policy will not help either. :(
