    The answer boils down to this seems to have been a problem since 11.10, although in 11.10 I had no trouble shutting down or restarting.

    One person wrote that he found a solution by adding the following line to the file /etc/default/halt:

    Code:
     
    INIT_HALT = POWEROFF
    I added this and so far I am able to shutdown without problem. So I think this is solved, but I'll wait a bit before marking it solved just to be sure.
    Thank you.. I well try that out and return to tell What happen

    Re: 12.04 shutdown freezes

    Unfortunately after a couple of clean shutdowns it hung again.
    I found another thread that suggested I downgrade my video driver.
    I found the driver but am not sure how to go about installing it. I got an error that said I can't install the driver with the X server running.

    UPDATE

    I looked up how to install the Nvidia driver that I had read was a solution for some people.
    I installed it.
    It totally killed my x server.
    I was stuck at a command line version of Ubuntu - while I use the terminal a lot, a totally graphic free computer is not my idea of fun!

    So I did a clean install and am now back at square one.

    Re: 12.04 shutdown freezes

    I have the same problem with a fresh install of 12.04. It randomly freezes after I shutdown. I get the purple screen with Ubuntu and it freezes.

    I also have a laptop that is freezing when it suspends.

    For a major release of Ubuntu, there are sure a lot of glitches and bugs. I guess thats why its free.

    Ready to wipe it and re-install Windows 7.

    On my Inspirion 1520 I have noticed problems with:

    1. Conky in 12.04 has a bug that messed up my conkies - solution is to downgrade Conky.
    2. The shortcut for the spell check in Gedit (Shift+F7) no longer works.
    3.The computer hangs when I shutdown or restart.
    4. The wireless problem that were in previous versions of Ubuntu is still here in 12.04 - the driver that comes with Ubuntu doesn't work and my card is not seen. The solution is to uninstall the wifi stuff that ships with Ubuntu and install a different driver.

    Re: 12.04 shutdown freezes

    On my computer, if I restart, it doesn't completely shut down as in the OP. But if I hit shutdown, it does. Logging out first makes both work though. When I want to restart, I just shutdown and hit the power button to restart. Not a deal breaker by any means for an otherwise perfectly working system.

    Re: 12.04 shutdown freezes

    I also have the same problem. As said by 'Libbard' (above)

    "It's freeze when screen with ubuntu and the dot's under it loading and just like that for hours!!"

    I think there is a software problem (bug) and I think 'livewire' is less than charitable in observing:

    'For a major release of Ubuntu, there are sure a lot of glitches and bugs. I guess thats why its free'.

    If you do not believe in the philosophy of open source software, you will never be satisfied with it.
    I do hope the software problem will be fixed soon.

    Re: 12.04 shutdown freezes

    I'm seeing the same behavior on a Dell Inspiron 1720.

    Fresh install of 12.04, running the post-release updates version of the NVidia drivers.

    As with others on this thread, if I logout prior to shutdown / restart, everything works as expected.

    It's only if I pick shutdown / restart while logged in, that the problem occurs.

    I've also tried:
    http://askubuntu.com/questions/12584...r-off-computer

    and the

    INIT_HALT = POWEROFF

    approach, but neither seem to work. Offering it up here, as one (or both) seemed to solve the problem for some folks.

    I'm reaching here - is it possible that this is something to do with Unity (since Unity doesn't come into play when you're logged out)?

    It seems to be something to do with the proprietary nvidia drivers.

    The ones that come stock with Ubuntu seem to not cause the problem.
