View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Shutdown Problems

September 1st, 2008, 08:31 PM
This is minor, but can anyone help me? When I shutdown Ubuntu it powers all the way down and then after about a second it powers back up? This is intermittent as well it does not always do it! Thank you if anyone has a solution to this!

Try this,

When you want to shut down your system, click on Applications>Accessories>Terminal

then type

sudo init 0

and see what happens, is the behavior same?
If the above code doesnt work, try this one

sudo poweroff

Thank you very much for your input and I will do these when I get home. I am at work right now and run Windows at work. I will get back with you!

When typing "sudo init 0" the system shutdown fine! Thank you and also is this temporary? I will let you know how it goes!

sudo init 0 is just a command to change the system runlevel to 0. 0 means halt. poweroff is as the name suggests.
