    Hi ryman90,
    pointing on step 4 of your solution should in fact works as you indicated, but in my case (Ubuntu Rescue Remix it is a Live CD as well) I've got this "funny" message

    Code:
    fsck: Device or resource busy while trying to open /dev/sda1
    Filesystem mounted or opened exclusively by another program?
    This means that the file system is locked even if is not mounted.

    Thanks! Your solution was the perfect one and solved my problem after I had to manually shut down Ubuntu when it hanged after the monitor went to sleep (which I'm still puzzled at).

    Sprang back to life without loosing anything, saved weeks of work

    Ironically, I broke the system doing a rsync backup with a directory name containing a space so some strange overwrites or something happened (I think that was the problem). Afterwards the shutdown dialogue box showed no buttons. I used a hard powerdown. Next time I booted I had the dreaded mount error and busy sda1 mount problem. This shows the power of a large user community.

    The problems startet when I did a upgrade for 10.04.

    Ran a Live CD and
    sudo fsck -yv /dev/sda1
    Not the first time fsck has rescued me from slightly panic
