[SOLVED] Turning off the computer...

Postby zal0st » Sun Jun 21, 2009 2:13 pm

Hello! I have Linux Mint 7 and every time when i turn off my computer i need to press down the power button because it's not turning off automatically. Does anybody know how to change it ? I had the same thing on Ubuntu and i added acpi=force to the line and it helped but it's not working on Mint...
I also tried adding acpi=off and /sbin/modprobe apm but with no result... I would be grateful if someone would help me because it's so anoying... :D
Oh and sorry for my english... :wink:

First of all go into your computer setup (BIOS) immediately on boot and make sure you have ACPI enabled. Then come back here...

The only option i have is "ACPI suspend to ram" i have enabled it... What now? :D

I have disabled that bios option and added acpi=force lapic to the console, now everything works fine, the computer is switching off automatically
