It takes minutes before shutdown menu appears.

First of I want to salute all of you on this forum.

I just installed Linux Mint Elyssa on my fathers desktop (Medion pentium 4 3.0GHz 512MB RAM ATI Radeon 9800 XL).

And found out that when you want to shutdown or restart after you just started a session (Elyssa button ---> Quit) it takes minutes before the logout screen appears. When working around in the session for a while the problem seems not to exist.

Any idea's?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

There is a bugreport on this issue here:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/123078

This usually happens when the gnome-power-manager is not enabled among autostarted programs:
From Menu -> System->Preferences->Sessions, please check that "power manager" is enabled.

I tried the proposed solution
To solve the bug I opened the "System > Preferences > Sessions" and added the gnome-power-manager as a startup program.
already, bug is still there. :(

Every program is checked in the startup programs menu.
