Re: [SOLVED] Can't start my machine after a power flicker

OK, this just got dumber. My setup is dual-monitored with a TV as the main monitor. The regular monitor stayed on, but the TV always turns off when it loses power. I wasn't seeing the login screen because my main monitor was turned off and my secondary monitor was...the secondary monitor. Turned on ...

[SOLVED] Can't start my machine after a power flicker

[Version: Mint 13 MATE] Cause: Power went completely off for a couple seconds during a thunderstorm. Stupidly, I tried to boot it back up, and then the power went off again while it was booting. I can now get to the menu that asks for regular boot/recovery mode/memtest. If I try to boot normally, it...

Re: Shutdown = Restart (ie.. Mint 14 will not shut down)

if hose the install. I'll start over. Just may switch to something LTS FYI, I get this same bug in LTS. Both Mint and Ubuntu. The "disconnect internet" first thing has been 100% reliable for me and this is a tower I rarely turn off so I've just been going with that. Would be interested if...

Drat, was really hoping it was the same bug. Thanks for trying anyway. Will report back if I find anything else.

Re: Shutdown = Restart (ie.. Mint 14 will not shut down)

jason, I am in a similar boat re: the BIOS. Can you shutdown if you disconnect from LAN first, or is that not possible? If it does work, you might take a look at this: http://www.hecticgeek.com/2012/09/disabling-wake-on-lan-in-ubuntu-might-save-a-tiny-bit-of-power-on-your-laptop/ It didn't work for ...

Re: Shutdown = Restart (ie.. Mint 14 will not shut down)

Oh ok, that is something different from what I'm having. In my case, the computer appears to power all the way off...then restarts instead. Regardless of if I use the menu, or "sudo poweroff" in terminal or whatever. I think this is what happened to OP too. I actually installed "ethto...

Re: Shutdown = Restart (ie.. Mint 14 will not shut down)

After some more googling I found some stuff on ubuntu sites that indicated "Wake on LAN" might be to blame. So I unplugged my wireless antenna before attempting a shutdown and it worked. I'm going to do some digging to see if I can find a better solution. EDIT: Right-clicking the network c...

Re: Shutdown = Restart (ie.. Mint 14 will not shut down)

Linux 13 MATE 64-bit here. I have the same problem. Even when I press the power switch, the computer says it's shutting down and restarts instead! EDIT: FWIW I tried an Ubuntu 12.04 live CD and had the same problem (older versions of linux mint don't have this problem when I boot from live CD). So w...
