Cannot reboot Debian Etch - 1 Core at 100%

I have a weird problem.

I cannot reboot my Debian Etch Server and one core shows as using 100% CPU but nothing appears to be using it????

I have tried kill -9 and killall via htop on the nbd mount and poweroff and shutdown commands but gett nothing.

I also killed a number of other processes but no joy.

Anyone have any ideas? I just want to reboot it..... never had this happen before on Debian.

Disable the tree-view in htop (F5 I think) to get a proper sorting.

the non-tree view looked identical but rearranged the list.

Here is ps aux instead

Hello try also command
Code:
init 6

eventually
Code:
sync ; shutdown -r now

Regarding core utilization, are you sure, that you are using the right kernel version???
Please correct me, if I am wrong, but I suppose that default kernel is not aware more than one core, maybe you should use SMP kernel version.
