Shutdown reboots system instead

Post by ParaDice » Sat Apr 28, 2018 1:40 pm

I have recently updated from kernel 4.13 to 4.15, which gave me the following behaviour on my Lenovo notebook: whenever I shut down the system (either via GUI or with "sudo shutdown 0"), it does not power down. Instead, it will power back up and reboot after 2-3 seconds.

I have tried some of the fixes that are usually recommended for dealing with this problem, e.g.
  • turn off WakeOnLAN in the BIOS
  • adding 'GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi=noirq"' to /etc/default/grub
None of these have worked for me, though. I run v4.15 on my desktop machine without any issues, so it seems to be a notebookish problem (specific to the hardware/drivers of that machine). I have attached my inxi -f output in case that helps.

Does the problem go away when you revert to the 4.13 kernel? Hold down the SHIFT key when booting and then choose the older kernel. If the problem goes away file a bug report.

Sorry, I should have mentioned that explicitly. Yes, as you can see from the inxi output, I have already reverted back to 4.13 to (successfully) solves the problem. If you're sure this is a bug in the kernel, I'll file a report.

Sorry for the late reply, but yes, file a bug report. When a kernel breaks a working system it indicates that there is a problem with the kernel, likely kernel drivers. The developers do want to know when something that has been working breaks with the new kernel.
