View Full Version : [ubuntu] Fresh install: fails to shutdown

September 15th, 2010, 01:31 AM
Just did a fresh LiveCD, format drive(new drive even) of 10.04.1 64 bit. When I click the power button, and select shutdown, it doesn't. It ends up logging me off, but that's it. No shutdown. Can't say I've tried all the power options there, but the shutdown is the most important one to me.

Any ideas on what is going on/how to fix it?

As a possible work around, try running from the terminal:

sudo shutdown -h now
If it gives errors and fails to shut down the system, post the errors here.
