I run an up-to-date Debian 9 / Stretch (amd64) on a DELL / WYSE Thin Client Z90D7 with AMD G-T56N CPU (1.65GHz), 4GB RAM and 16GB SSD. Except for keyboard and mouse (both USB) no custom / additional hardware is used.
The system runs fine except for a power-off issue:
The kernel obviously is unable to power-off the machine. The OS shuts down and everything looks fine. Even USB seems to be shutdown as keyboard and optical mouse turn off and don't react anymore.
The last line printed is:
"Reboot: Power down"
Then the screens stays that way indefinitely. The device stays powered on and I have to "cold-power-off" by pressing the power button for a few seconds.
Steps to reproduce:
System hangs after printing "Reboot: power down" (while still showing that console output). Then it must be powered off manually by pressing the power button of the device for a few seconds.
The system is powered off automatically without having to force a device power-off using the power button.
Unsuccessfull solution attempts:
I have tried different solution approaches but nothing worked:
A) Kernel boot parameters:
- noapic irqpoll
B) Switching to APM shutdown (kernel parameter + /etc/modules setting "apm power_off=1")
C) Add a custom init script run at shutdown to rmmod the snd_hda_intel before shutdown

It could be possibly a duplicate of https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=199349. See the latest comment here for a solution.
I have what seems to be a similar issue as the one posted here by the OP.
This is on a Sun Microsystems Ultra 24 Workstation (BIOS v1.56) running under Linux devuan 4.9.0-8-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.144-3.1 (2019-02-19) x86_64 GNU/Linux and an Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9550.
Basically, on shutdown the machine will do one of two things:
1. shut down properly
2. freeze during the shutdown at this point ...
e1000e: EEE Tx LPI Timer
Preparing to enter sleep state S5
Reboot: Power Down
... with the fans blowing at full speed.
Whenever it occurrs, the last line is before the freeze is the same:
Reboot: Power Down
Unfortunately, I have not been able to reproduce it or link it to anything in particular, it just happens every so many shutdowns and the number can go from3 to 20 with no discernible (at least to me) pattern.
None of the /var/log files (syslog, kern.log, faillog, messages) show anything relevant, which is not a surprise as in that state (ie: Reboot: Power Down) filesystems are in a RO state.
I have tried the same approaches as the OP ...
1) various kernel boot parameters
2) a custom init script run at shutdown to rmmod the e1000e driver module
...but the issue eventually ocurrs again.
I have also tried a shutdown script using /proc/sysrq-trigger to no avail: eventually it will also occurr and in the same manner.
The problem woud seem to be distribution agnostic as it also happens in an emergency skeleton TCLinux installation (with an older kernel) that I boot from a USB memory stick and in a Mint installation I was using up to about a couple of years ago before I moved to Devuan.
Please advise or ask for addiitonal information if required.
Thanks in advance.
