View Full Version : [ubuntu] 8.10 Shutting Problem

November 16th, 2008, 09:45 AM
I have updated my system from 8.04 to 8.10. Everything is working OK, except when I shut down laptop, Ubuntu does not shut off completely, and everytime I have to force shut down my laptop. Any solution on this problem?

"Open the file /etc/init.d/alsa-utils with the following command:

sudo gedit /etc/init.d/alsa-utils

The file opens in Gedit and around the line 353 you'll find the instruction "stop)". Below this instruction you should add these two instructions:

ifconfig wlan0 down
ifconfig eth0 down

So, the file should be this way:

ifconfig wlan0 down
ifconfig eth0 down

After doing this, save the file, close it and restart or shutdown Ubuntu

There is a better solution than modifying the alsa-utils. Follow this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=965935).
