    I noticed the same problem with Toshiba C855. No way to shut down, it keeps restarting again. Then I unplugged it from AC and while on battery it shuts down normally.

I have read postings similar to this, all Aser aspire models, on other forums with no replies.
    Thank you in advance for any help.
    I have exactly the same situation - brand new V5 with Win7 and 12.10. It just will not shut down. So frustrating. Have you come across any solution yet?

    Thanks.

    Same here. Just got an acer aspire v5 and it reboots when I select shutdown.
    Have been going through quite some threads now, but nothing yet. One thread mentioned that it is the power management of the USB ports that is to blame, but it was on fedora so could not try the fix mentioned there...
    The workaround I use now is to hit the power button when I get the grub menu. It shuts down quite cleanly then. But it would be nice to have a simple shut down functional.

    Re: 12.10 will not shut down

    I have the same problem. I just bought my Acer Aspire V5-471 and installed Ubuntu 12.10 as my single OS.

    At first it was okay. But few days later, I have problem with shutdown process. It always restarted when I click shutdown. Searching on the web for many times, but still have no any solution. I've tried many codes using terminal, but the result was always the same.

    Maybe the only solution is just reinstalled this OS. Huh..

    I have the same problem on my Asus eee B202 PC, except that I have Ubuntu 12.04 only installed (no M$ Windows). To make matters worse for me, it is an intermittent problem – even harder to try and solve.

    I have ready many threads from members with the same problem. Still no solution has been found.
