Linux Mint Julia freezes at shutdown(not a hardware problem)

Postby mrg-dk on Thu Jan 27, 2011 8:57 pm

hello, :)

Because I didn't find solution to my problem in this forum or alse where I have no choice but to ask for help. :mrgreen:

I have just installed Linux Mint Julia 32bit, from boot dvd and it freezes at shutdown of my desktop. The Linux Mint loggo comes as it shuts down the desktop but loggo remains there for a very long time and then I have to press powerbutton for long time to force the desktop off.
Anyone can help explaining what can happen? :?:

PS: The hardware meet the requirements for running Linux Mint 10. :D

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

There are a number of posts with similar issues.

One person solved his freeze by shutting down from terminal with this command
sudo shutdown -h now

others having this issue found it resolved with some updates, the updates were not specified

others have created this problem of freezing during shutdown by editing grub to solve a freezing problem occurring during use by turning acpi off HERE

to find out more of what is going on to cause the problem check the log files either through > Menu > Administration > Log File Viewer, or to save a lot of time scanning extensive files
dmesg | grep shutdown
sudo cat /var/log/*.log* | grep shutdown
dmesg | grep suspend
sudo cat /var/log/*.log* | grep suspend

The last one, since I suspend or hibernate frequently on this laptop is long. Try the shutdown commands first.
