Ok then here is a suggestion:

Boot your system. Select the 2.6.18-xxx kernel and press e to edit boot 
options. Move to the end of the line with right & left arrow keys. Type 
acpi=off et tne end of the line. Press enter and then b

So your new kernel will boot with ACPI disabled. If it is really a power issu 
this will reveal it.

And how to get the boot.log file?

It is easy. When you log in to tthe system run terminal/konsole. type su or su 
root and become root.

when it is done type gedit. Now you van browse and edit files. Ypu can read 
the content od boot.msg and boot.log in /var/log.

I hope it works.
