    Question All Distros: Shutdown Messages Display Randomly All Over Screen

    Hello,

    As long as I can remember, and with every Ubuntu distro I've ever had installed, the shutdown messages have always displayed ramdomly all over the screen.

    I assume this is because the video processes are also shutting down, causing the unpredictable display of shutdown messages.

    I'm not particularly disturbed by this; but it does give one the impression that the system-shutdown is 'not' occuring in an orderly fashion. This is really more of an image/confidence issue that a functional one. However, if the shutdown messages are being displayed for a reason, I would like to be able to read them until the very last moment; and possibly even be able to suspend them and the shutdown, if I observe a message I'd like to study more closely.

    I think the way to accomplish this would be to wait to shut down the video processes until last...

    Is there a resolution/work-around for this???




    Thanks, Hannibal
