    PC does not shut down

    Ubuntu Version 11.10
    Desktop

    When I try to shut down the PC, it shows the text:
    *Killing all renaming process Status Failed
    150.538963 System halted.
    And the PC hangs.

    This problem started after the recent updates.
    I tried starting the PC in recovery mode for any broken packages, but it did not show any.

    If the text does not come, the closing Ubuntu windows stops at last two points.

    It is a dual boot, so I have to restart the PC in windows and shut it down.

    Can you show us the output of
    lspci | grep -i VGA
    so we know what video card you've got?

    The graphic card is not from nvidia. It is the default on-board card.

    Edit the file /etc/default/grub:
    sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

    then change that line:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    to this:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi=force quiet splash"

    save the changes and type:
    sudo update-grub
    then reboot

    And test if the computer can shut down.

    Same problem persists even after editing the grub file.

    Re: PC does not shut down

    to get the verbose mode (letting you know what happen while shutting down), remove the "quiet splash" from /etc/default/grub

    then : sudo update-grub

    also clean the system as much as possible:
    clean/autoclean/autoremove/gtkorphan/bleachbit (as root, but carefully set the options)

    and of course, glance at .xsession-errors & /var/log/dmesg to find possible usefull errors.

    type this:
    dmesg > log.txt
    then upload the file log.txt
