    Right - I re-installed 14.04 and when it refused to reboot immediately afterwards to compete the installation, I knew that I had wasted my time - I'm back to square one! I tried editing the file via leafpad (much easier) but my laptop sill won't shut down. Where do I go from here? As it works with 13.10, can I leave it there wihout it updating itself? But surely that's not good in the long term?

    Thanks to all of you for your help - any further suggestions gratefully accepted!

    Shock! Horror! It now shuts down! What did I do? After posting the previous post, I ran the software updater to update everything after the fresh install. I clicked on the reboot button to complete the update - and it rebooted! Maybe that leafpad thing did the trick after a delay? I tested the reboot and shutdown modes 2 or 3 times and it works.

    Anyway, I now have a laptop that works and it's all because of you helpful people. Thank you all very much!

    Glad to see it is finally working, even if some magic was involved

    Re: Lubuntu 14.04 won't shut down

    I had issues with 14.04 not shutting down. I had to reach the desktop and shut down using the menu once. That failed so I rebooted and ran init 6 and then once it rebooted ran init 0. After that I shut down with the menu and it worked. No idea why.

    Do you happen to have an nvidia or Intel video card?

    Re: Lubuntu 14.04 won't shut down

    I have the same problem with my desktop computer with Lubuntu 14.10. Worked flawlessly with 12.10 and even 13.04 and 13.10

    When I grep the dmesg output, I don't anything for oops. Are there any other patterns or keywords I should look for?

    Re: Lubuntu 14.04 won't shut down

    Linux Mint 17, Ubuntu 14.04,(64bit, laptop new Akoya E1232T, Intel celeron N2807,UEFI) same problem, solution doesn't work(also other solutions on forums,editing grub etc..) . I also changed kernels but still nothing, freeze after reboot/shutdown. Even when booted from live CD/USB. But if boot the Gparted live USB, no problem, reboot, shutdown works. So this is not HW problem but Ubuntu issue. Masters of LINUX, please help!!!

    Re: Lubuntu 14.04 won't shut down

    I tried a number of fixes proposed here and elsewhere for Kubuntu 12.04.2 on an Acer E3-112, including changes to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and additions to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT= in /etc/default/grub. None worked consistently. Simply deleting all all options for GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT= did work, however, on a Samsung EVO 850 SSD. Without the fix, not only does the laptop not shut down; the file system appears to become increasingly corrupt, with lots of entries in lost+found, but is in fact OK when examined on a different computer. Curiously, this fix is not necessary for the same system when installed on a mechanical hard drive. The missing splash screens don't bother me at all.
