Actually I doubt this is an acpi issue.

I would press ctrl-alt-f10 while its shutting down and watch
the console.    Sometimes this is ctrl-alt-f12, varies by distro.

You may well see a kernel panic on that screen
as it tries to unload some modules.  If so, you just need to
find the setting in your distro where you tell it modules not
to unload upon exit.

It is also not uncommon for dual processor machines to go
to init 0 (stopped state) but fail to power down because one
processor is not sure the other is done.

There are many GOOD reasons acpi was put in modern motherboards, and
turning it off usually means several things stop working.  It is almost
never wise to turn off acpi unless you have a known to be defective
