Re: Unable to shutdown ubuntu 11.10 installed on laptop

Currently I am having Asus u46e with a ssd. At the beginning I was having issue while booting the system. I solved that by using boot option ?acpi=off?. But after doing that I got an issue while shut down the laptop. Hence I done bit research work on the above mentioned problem and simply changed boot option to ?noapic?. Now I am not having any issue while shutdown the laptop. I hope the thing which I have mentioned over here will be useful to you.

Re: Unable to shutdown ubuntu 11.10 installed on laptop

After going through the problem I recommend some important thing which you should check it out on your system.
You should check whether you are having
Quote:
/etc/rc0.d/S90halt > for shutdown/power off
/etc/rc6.d/S90reboot > for reboot
You should try to shutdown and check the log file.
Code:
dmesg | less
less /var/log/syslog
less /var/log/syslog.1

Re: Unable to shutdown ubuntu 11.10 installed on laptop

I found many users online who are having similar kind of issue with ubuntu 11.10. Hence I am suspecting that there is bug issue associated with the operating system. So all the users who are having the same issue should contact the developers and file a bug report to them. They will address the bug issue and release the patch which you should download and install the same on the computer of yours.
