Computer reboots instead of shutting down.

Postby LexMK on Fri Nov 16, 2012 8:55 pm

Essentially what the subject says. When I try to turn off the computer it reboots instead, even if it explicitly says that it's shutting down.

As written in my signature, my computer is an Asus eee 1225b.

Haven't had this problem with any other computer.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Have you tried entering the command sudo shutdown now and entering your regular password? Do you get any errors on your screen during the shutdown process or before?

Which version of Mint are you using?
LMDE Mate 64-bit, LM17 Mate 64-bit
Debian Xfce 64-bit, Xubuntu 14.10 64-bit, Xubuntu 14.04 64-bit, Antergos Xfce 64-bit, PCLinuxOS LXDE 64-bit

Gives some error related to ieee80211 while shutting down. Does it too fast, can't read.

I'm using LMDE, updated to latest version. I'm using the 3.6-trunk kernel downloaded from packages.debian, but gives the same error with the standard 3.2.0-3 kernel included in LMDE UP5.

Sorry, I had another computer to work on.

802.11 is probably your network connection. Did you try either shutting down your router or disconnecting your cable if you use one, and then seeing if you can shut down? You may have PXE boot allowed over the network, which is automatically restarting when you shut down unless you don't have any network connection. You would then have to go into your BIOS and disable PXE boot for a fix.

I am having this same problem. Selecting shutdown from any software menu will not actualy shutdown the machine- it _looks_ at first as though it is going to shutdown, OS and filesystems unloaded etc, even the fans start clicking off. But as soon as the PSU fan is just about dead still the machine reboots.

In playing around I found:

Entering "sudo shutdown -h now" does the same thing.

Entering "sudo init 0" does actually shutdown. Pressing and holding 5+ seconds the hardware power button on the front panel also does a proper shutdown.

This is a new machine, freshly loaded with the current Maya, 201204. This problem exists both booting from the LiveDVD or from the installation on the SSD. I have several other versions of Linux- a few different old versions of Ubuntu, and even the Trininty Rescue disk that do not exhibit this problem in this machine.

I do not get this problem when booting from the same Maya disc on a different machine (my laptop). So it appears to be an interaction between this new version of LMDE and my new desktop machine.

My new machine has a new Intel mobo- the DZ77GA-70K. Using on-board video and sound, one SSD, two optical drives. Updated BIOS and all software (UP 6).

More details and workaround: I'm using an Intel 2200BNHMWDTX1 PCI Express x1 Centrino Advanced-N 2200 wireless NIC. Current firmware. The NIC was not being recognized _intermittently_. Someone on a different forum suggested blacklisting the e1000e driver the LAN uses. That, by itself, did not resolve the problem. However, if I blacklist that driver _and_ turn off the LAN in the BIOS then shutdown now works as it should.

One might then surmise that the problem lies with an incompatibility between these network drivers and Linux, but that doesn't explain why other versions of Linux that I tried don't exhibit this problem.

I am having a few other problems with this version of LMDE Maya I suspect might be related - xhci and USB3.0. More on that later if anyone is interested or knowlegeable about their interaction.
