I see no good reason why you want to do such a halt that just spins and
do nothing but suck power...

If the problem is to have the machine turn back on, I fail to see how
halting it this way would help. The only thing I can imagine is enabling
the server mode option. I added that feature to my very latest trees
for Core99 machines and later (AGP machines), and there used to be a
tool doing that for CUDA based machines.
