    Toshiba laptop in dual boot restarts after shutting down Xubuntu

    Hello,
    I bought a new Toshiba Satellite C870-15J with Windows 7 installed.
    Made a dual boot with Xubuntu 12.04.
    When I shut down Xubuntu, the system seems to turn itself completely off, but after some seconds I hear a click, and the system reboots itself.
    The same when I shut down via the terminal with "sudo shutdown -h now".
    In the power manager I changed the value for the onn-off button to shut off, but still the same problem.
    I also entered the bios and made sure every Wake-on-LAN-like-function is disabled.
    In grub I changed GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi=force quiet splash" as suggested in another thread. To no avail...
    When I use the "Windows-side" and shut off, it stays off, which is why I think it can't be a hardware problem.
    Can anybody help me? It is a new laptop and it's rather annoying it won't work as it should...
    Thanks,
    Yann

    Did you use Wubi?

    Does the PC shutdown correctly when you run the following sudo command:
    Code:
    sudo shutdown -h now

    try

    Code:
    sudo shutdown -P now
    I think that should shut it down properly. I doesn't answer the question as to why it is re-starting, but it might help you out until you find a proper solution.

    Re: Toshiba laptop in dual boot restarts after shutting down Xubuntu

    Hi. I bought a Toshiba Satellite Pro C850 a week ago and have had the same issues & symptoms, also with a Win7 dual boot setup. I use regular Ubuntu 12.04 though, installed from a cd.

    None of the commands mentioned above worked for me, and I also tried "sudo poweroff" with the same results. I also tried rebooting, then shutting down from the login screen, but nope. I also tried a few shutdown-timer applications, with the same result - a reboot, not a shutdown.

    I'm a newb & don't want to muscle in on someone else's thread, but if there's any way I can help to find a solution, please let me know. Thanks!

    What happens when you run the following commands:

    Code:
    sudo vi /etc/default/grub
    set
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi=noirq quiet splash"
    then
    Code:
    sudo update-grub

    Thanks for the tips, but they don't resolve the problem... Neither the "shutdown -P now" nor the
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi=noirq quiet splash"The only way to shut down completely is waiting till the restart and then hitting the on-off button again... A way I don't really like.

    Same problem here.

    Bought and Acer Aspire v5-531g. Installed ubuntu 12.04 LTS next to windows 7. When I shut down ubuntu, my laptop shuts down, and a few seconds later boots up again. I can only properly shut down the laptop when i shut down through windows.

    Reading that the above option hasnt worked for anyone, I havent tried it yet.

    Re: Toshiba laptop in dual boot restarts after shutting down Xubuntu

    Let's go a different route as my wife's PC was having a similar issue in which it would not reboot nor shutdown. How I fixed it was as follows:

    Type in terminal:
    Code:
    1. sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
    Code:
    2. Find the line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    Code:
      3. Change this to: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi=force"
    Code:
    4. Save the file and close the file.  5. Finally, in terminal: sudo update-grub
    Let me know if this works for you.
