First time here so a big "Hello!" to everyone.
I have an acer aspire 7520 that I have installed Mint on to, works perfect except for one silly little thing.
When I am shutting down, it goes through all the motions, blank screen, then a click from my hard drive as it stops spinning, then nothing, the laptop just stays on until my battery dies. The only way I can get it to turn off, is if I shut down, wait until the HDD clicks, then close the lid and open it again, then the laptop will turn off, or if i shut it down, close the lid, then open it after I hear a click from the HDD.
The opening of the lid from closed seems to finalise the shut down.
So far I have changed the settings on the actions for lid closed to "Do nothing", to see if that helped, it didnt.
I have tried it on AC power, it still does it.
Not a major issue, more of an annoyance, I would like not to need to sit with the thing while its shutting down and look like a fool closing the lid and opening it again before closing it again and putting it into my laptop bag so I would greatly appreciate any help with this.
