    11.10 laptop won't finish shutting down

    Everything about the update works fine until I try to turn my laptop off. Then the shutdown seems to happen normally up until the point where it would normally turn off, then it hangs. The final screen before shutdown is there, with the ubuntu logo and the five dots, but nothing happens. What can I do?

    Similar problem. Unable to shutdown.
    Doing a shutdown closes running programs and takes me to the desktop login prompt.
    Tried 'shutdown now' from terminal window ... that hangs in the process of shut down.

    Same with my Lenovo G570. Will not shut down or restart with the menu selection, have to use the power button.

    ps: clean, full install of 11.10, beautiful otherwise!

    Same to me on my Asus K52J, this bug was already in 11.04 (I was on 10.10 because of that).
    Even shutting down with sudo not always works.

    My Asus X73 (MB name K73SV) takes a few seconds to shut down, long enough to be noticed but it shuts down properly besides that.

    Idem for my HP Probook 6540b, all ok but no shutdown and no reboot.

    Not that this helps out the discussion, but my new Asus u46e also has this problem with a fresh install of 11.10.
