LMDE doesn't turn off PC

Postby yef13 on Sat Mar 30, 2013 7:52 am

Hi everybody, I have just installed LMDE and everything seems to work fine, except one thing.
It doesn't turn off my pc. WHen i use the "turn off" option, the screen goes black, but the fans and the leds keep on working.

Hope you can help.
Thanks in advance.

Unplug power cable before shutdown.

Is it a joke?

I've got it on a Desktop, not a Laptop.

No it was not. I assumed it was a laptop, sorry. Then I suggest bringing down network interfaces by following this thread:
