View Full Version : [ubuntu] Lap top shut down problem

February 26th, 2011, 05:05 PM
My old lap-top originally had 8.04 installed. It had an inability to shut down when told. This was cured by adding a line in menu.lst saying acpi=force. I am now on 9.10 (leading to 10.04 to keep on LTS) Does this cure still apply? Things may have moved on since then with the change from grub to grub2 for instance. Advice please!
