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.
