Mint 17 freezes on shutdown or reboot

Post by rast » Thu Aug 07, 2014 2:47 pm

I just installed Mint 17 xfce and I can't shutdown or reboot it. Every time I try to reboot or shutdown, it freezes and I have to hold the power button to turn it off.
I don't know if it's important, but the last info on screen, when freezes, is:

ModemManager [714]: <warn> Could not acquire the 'org.freedesktop.ModemManager1' service name

I tried every solution I've found on the internet, like grub commands: reboot=bios, reboot=acpi and others. Nothing helped.
Is there any way to fix it?

Something like this I've seen, too - but quite seldom (using Mint 17 Mate). Does the system enter the menu in recovery mode?

Sorry, but I finally gave up and downgraded to Mint 13 Xfce. System worked OK, the only bug was freezing during shutdown. I didn't start system in recovery mode or safe mode, so I don't know if it would shutdown correctly then.
I also tried Lubuntu 14.04.1 and it has the same bug. Then I tried non-Ubuntu-based distro (Sparky Linux 3.4 with kernel 3.14) and it doesn't have this bug. Works OK and shutdowns OK.
It means that all the latest Ubuntu-based distros have the same bug. Or globally all distros with kernel 3.13.
I've read somewhere that this bug is caused by wrong driver loaded. Since I'm linux newbie and don't know anything about drivers and how to handle them on linux, I had to give up.
Now waiting for the Linux MInt 18 Xfce and hoping this bug will no longer be there.
Thanks for your reply anyway. :)

Gateway DX4850-41C does not shut off computer on quit.

Post by HarrisCreekCentral » Mon Aug 18, 2014 10:36 pm

With reference to this posting:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...it-4175511458/
In a nutshell, here was my problem. Linux Mint17 Qiana Mate 64bit, when shutting down, would not shut off the main computer.. The desktop closed but I had to manually hold the stop button until it shut down.

Now, I have two other computers running Linux Mint 16 Petra Mate 32 bit, and I have no shutdown problem with that download. A couple days ago I asked, can I use the 32 bit OS on a 64 bit computer, and the consensus was yes..

I downloaded the Qiana 17 Mint Mate and burned my new DVD.. Booted up the new DVD, and installed the system on the 64 bit computer.. Wonder of Wonders, my system shuts down perfectly.. As I had backed up all my files and photos, I have now re-loaded most everything, and so far I am happy camper..

I wanted to share this with everyone on this forum, just in case someone else is having the same problem.

Thanks for all the information, suggestions etc., that I have received. This is also a great group.

I'm posting this in each forum so it may help others with the same problem.

I have today just made a bootable USB for Mint 17 "Qiana" and installed it alongside Mint 13 "Maya" so I now have a dual boot system.

I had a total lock up with the screen on Terminal when I chose the first 'reboot' option. I could not even turn off the laptop and tried holding down the on/off button and also Ctrl+Alt, Del but finally gave up and removed the battery. Replaced the battery and switched on - all OK and I now have a choice of booting to the Old M13 or the new M17.

I am now trying to do a restore of the M13 files to M17 as we speak and then I want to delete M13. Don't know exactly what to do or if this is the right way to do things.

Will keep you posted. Will update my sig if it works :wink:

Re: Mint 17 freezes on shutdown or reboot

Post by fiuz » Sun Dec 14, 2014 8:52 am

Hi, i had same problem for 2 weeks, i tried:
- rename "org.freedesktop.ModemManager1" to another thing.
- reset bios and changed uefi things.
- reboot with shutdown with several commands.
- changed grub and other sistem files with steps i found.
- upgraded and downgraded kernel.
... nothing worked.
Finally, when i list my usb devices with "sudo lsusb" this takes 10 mins or more. The list are ok, but without my multicards device.
The solution for now is unplug the multicard usb device conected to my motherboard.
I have a Gigabyte g1.sniper Z97, looks like has more problems to detect devices like the ethernet Qualcomm Atheros Bigfoot Killer E2200 that doesnt works property, but updating to kernel 3.16.0 with the Update manager > linux kernels its works (but i have problems with my i7 with this kernel bc the cores stays at 4400 Mhz and not 800 on idle to save power, ppl says than this works again in 3.16.1 but not in the list of updates and i dont tried to update manually, go back to 3.13.0-40).
Hope it helps to someone.

Re: Mint 17 freezes on shutdown or reboot

I have related problem on Mint 17 and 17.1 64-bit.

For me 'Quit' always shutsdown the system but if I 'Logout' then try and shutdown using the button in top-right of greeting display, at least 50% time shutdown hangs.

I use 'logout' because that's the only way I can ensure the PostSession script runs which backups data automatically to a NAS. 'Quit' kills the script shortly after it starts.

This may be useful tip: When I get the shutdown hang, I can open a virtual terminal by pressing ctrl-alt-1 at the blank screen and get a login prompt. I login as 'root' using my password then run 'shutdown -h now'. This causes the normal Mint shutdown to resume and doesn't crash the system.....

This probably needs filing as a bug
