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

    Doesn't work... and it gets stranger: I discovered the laptop does not show this behaviour when working on accu only: when I pull out the power cable before shutting off, it stays down, like it should.
    I don't know if this could be a "solution" too for Sneaky1 and Orphyrion?

    Didnt work for me either Daslinkard.

    Not sure what Yannanael means, I tried a few things with my power cable but it keeps rebooting. If it works it sounds more like a workaround than a fix

    Wow! Yes that works for me, Yannanael. Thanks for that! I also tried Das' suggestion but no difference. Thanks too!

    Orphyrion, what they meant was when you want to shut down, simply disconnect the power lead, then shutdown, and for us at least, it works as it's supposed to then. Definitely a workaround, but good enough for me. Best of luck.

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

    No fix for this yet, eh? I've got an Acer Aspire V5-571-6605 that's doing this too with Xubuntu 12.04. Getting the laptop was such a ruckus to begin with, I think my customer is going to kill me when I say "Oops -- too bad"
    I installed laptop-mode-tools and found that a sudo shutdown -h now shut it down consistently with the power cord plugged in. On battery, no love. With the grub entry mentioned earlier, I had to hit the power button after the system halted. This may have to be the answer for now; I don't want them to have to type in their password to shut down (if I make a launcher for the shutdown -h command) But if anyone conjures up a fix for this, I'd be in love. Pepe Le Pew and a Cat kind of love. I might even send flowers!

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

    Hey guys, i was googling around for a solution to this, and someone using Fedora is suffering the same thing, but found out the cause; its connected to the USB Bus not powering down correcty.

    He made a shutdown script adaption, however, its for Systemd based systems, not ubuntu.

    If anyone can figure out how to implement this into Ubuntu, let me know.

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

    I had the same problem on my Toshiba Satellite C670D-10L and after days of search this works for me:

    Open a terminal: Accessories/Terminal or Ctrl+alt+t

    1. In the terminal type:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/rc.local

    2. In the rc.local file add, after comments:

    Code:
    echo " LID" > /proc/acpi/wakeup

    like this:
    .
    .
    # By default this script does nothing.
    echo " LID" > /proc/acpi/wakeup
    exit 0

    3. Save and Restart
