Incomplete shutdown process- Linux Mint Cinnamon 15 64bit

Postby iinnet007 on Fri Oct 18, 2013 3:47 am

I have a dual boot system with Windows 7 and Linux Mint Cinnamon 15 64-bit version.

When I try to shutdown, sometimes my laptop will not turn off! Just Linux Mint logo will be there. So i need to long press power button. But no use!! So I have to press Alt+Ctrl+F2 and Ctrl+Alt+Delete and then long press power button again. After a 3 secs, laptop will be turned off.

I have to do the same thing most of the times, which is not good for my hardware.

Windows7 will shutdown properly. No issues.
