View Full Version : [ubuntu] shutdown button on dektop

December 10th, 2008, 12:13 AM
when I try to shut down my computer with the shut-down button on the desktop, the computer hangs in a semi-suspended state. The only way to shut down the computer is to push the shut-down button on the computer's panel. This is not "healthy", data may be lost.

Is there a solution? :confused:

try a "sudo shutdown -h now" in the terminal this is the shutdown command if that hangs its your computer and you have an issue with the shutdown sequence. if not just use the terminal to shut down
