    Sony Vaio hangs sometimes at shutdown

    I don't know what it causes, but my Sony Notebook (Sandy Bridge second generation) sometimes hangs at shutdown. I only see the Ubuntu Logo and three dots and then everything is frozen. How can I get an error log or something like that? This is on precise.

    Hi,

    Even I used to have this issue. So I was manually shutting it down using "sudo shutdown -P now".
    But now its never hanging after installing some updates. Not sure what fixed it.

    (I was facing this issue in ubuntu 11.10)

    How can I switch to the command line when the splash screen hangs at shutdown.

    I have not yet tried 12.04.
    You cannot do anything once it hangs. So just shut it down using the command everytime

    It's the same here with 12.04. Sometimes it won't shutdown. It's a VPCCA2S1E.


    Do you happen to know which logs to check upon reboot?

    Will try the command line, but it is still not nice.
