That may work but it depends. It is not what got may machine to shutoff.
It implies that ACPI is off in the BIOS.. You want to use apm rather the
better acpi. 
On my machine when I had acpi on in the BIOS and running from init.d
this is what I found. As the system booted there was a message acpi
shutting down try the lacpi option on the kernel.

That may not be the boot message verbatim but that was the content.
So I put the lacpi on the grub kernel line and the machine shut down.
This may be another alternative to solve your problem.
