Default halt -p problem

Dear Sirs
I need a help in solving a problem with a "halt -p" disorder which I encountered on my Presario CQ60 laptop.
My OS is OpenBSD 4.6.
When I need to shutdown and power off my system I use a ' shutdown -hp now' or 'halt -p' commands from the shell prompt. But the results are ambiguous: sometimes it really shuts down and power-offs and sometimes it just restarts.
Can you give me a hint, please, on how to make it so that when I type 'halt -p' my machine will always completely stop and turn its lights off?
