    Shutdown gives login prompt

    I installed Intrepid a few weeks ago and just have been living with this problem.

    If I shutdown or restart fromt he menu in th epanel, it bumps me out to the login screen. Same thing if I use "sudo shutdown -h now" the only way I can get this to work is by using "sudo poweroff"

    I'm not sure if this is the problem but one of the messages says "Unable to iterate IDE devices" (I think) when I shutdown (I disabled the splash).

    That looks like it. At least there's workaround. Thanks!
