 Not switching off is normal, but only if the box is secure :)

 A few suggestions:  When you go into chroot, add some identifier
into PS1, such as PS1='\u in chroot \w \$' (e.g. removing the host name
to avoid a long prompt).  Also, once you get into chroot, `ls -l /' to
make sure you really can't see any of the build host.  I've seen
examples on this list where the chroot command didn't work and people
were root on the build host.

 At the end,  pay careful attention to what the book says about grub.
As a first step to booting LFS it is well worth adding the lfs kernel to
grub's menu on the build host, rather than trying to boot directly with
the new grub.  This lets you prove that you can boot it.  You'll still
need various BLFS things before the build is close to usable.
