I've been happily using Mint 13 Maya for a while now however an odd problem has reared it's head. I'm not really sure if it even justifies the term "problem" but it's slightly annoying nonetheless.
Mint used to shutdown in approximately 12 seconds on my (admittedly old) laptop with the only message being something about modem catching something and shutting down, it went so fast I never got the chance to read it properly.
However, now the first thing shown in the black screen is "Mint 13 Maya <my computer name> login:"
Then it sits there for about 15 seconds (nothing is typeable) and finally I get the modem message and it shuts down fine.
Any ideas what's causing it? I'm not even really sure how to begin finding out. Is there "programs that run on shutdown" type thing?
Any advice very much appreciated.
EDIT: forgot to say, I'm running Mint 13 on a Dell Vostro 1000 laptop with the MATE desktop.
