    Ubuntu 12.10 shutdown time issue

    I had Ubuntu 12.04 on my Dell 1558 with the following Config:
    i3
    8GB RAM
    128 GB SSD

    it use to take less than 2 seconds to shutdown but since i update to 12.10, it takes about 5 second. I feel that there is something abnormal.
    I checked /var/log/syslog but cannot locate anything. While shutting down i see [Fail] next to Terminating all other processes but it flashes so quickly that i can not read it all. Since HDD is off by then, it doesnt get logged either. Any help would be appreciated.

    I also experienced longer shutdown times on my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge. This might be not specific to your laptop.

    Shutting down in 5 seconds doesn't sound abnormal. I'd say it's normal and reasonable.

    I'm at probably 12-15 seconds, using 12.04. It used to be quicker, maybe 5-6 if I remember correctly.

    When they first released 12.10 I was shutting down in 3 seconds. After the updates less than a week later, I went from 3 seconds to 16 seconds. There is a bug report on this.

    It's generally 4-500% longer in 12.10 vs. 12.04 on same hardware
    (network manager seems to be involved, also on nouveau sometimes a few add. secs due to a 'gpu lockup' whatever
