There is no Linux Mint Debian 15. Only Linux Mint 15 Olivia which is Ubuntu based and LMDE 201303 (Linux Mint Debian Edition) which is based on Debian. So.... what version is it that you have tried to install?

When I tested the LMDE 2013-03 live USB and on both my ASUS F8V and my Lenovo S10-3C, both the shutdown and reboot procedures froze the system and did not manage to power it down. Unfortunately, this is is a show-stopper for LMDE 2013-03. The ability for the laptops to shutdown, is really required.

it's a know bug from the live cd you can use 'sudo halt' to shut it down or press the REISUB combo.

I have noticed this but found a simple fix. Do the following

Install Linux Mint as normal
When you get a message giving 2 options "restart now" and "continue testing" click continue testing
Wait about 5 seconds then choose shutdown from the menu and it will give you the disc back with "press enter to continue prompt"

Only choose shutdown from the menu otherwise you will end up back where you were
The restarting from live cd in mint does not work perfectly for some reason but hope it gets fixed :mrgreen:



Just to point out this has happened on ASROCK motherboard with AMD chip and on a Gateway Intel Laptop wether installing 32 or 64 bit
