12.04 won't shut down updating the BIOS?
With the release of 14.04.1 just around the corner, I ask if I need to upgrade my BIOS from 2009. My 12.04 has never been able to power down the computer. The most recent BIOS from the motherboard's maker is 2011. I don't expect anyone to know much about BIOSs. I see reports at Sourceforge and other places that this is pretty common with older BIOSs. Anybody know what to do? FYI - this is not a UEFI BIOS.
