There appears to be a lock in the kernel drivers. I think it says something like
"not shutting down because VBUS is available".

I don't know if this can be solved differently or is the best solution.

Maybe it is not possible to completely shutdown but suspend the
device so that it can wake up.

Christoph has written some statements about power management
and maybe the 3.1 or 3.2 kernel will be a better basis to solve it than
the 2.6.32.
