    Lubuntu will not shutdown properly

    Folks I am trying Lubuntu on an old HP Pavilion ZE4400. I had an issue installing it but got the work around to get it installed.Now everytime I hit shutdown the computer will begin the process of shutting down, goes to the Lubuntu splash but never shuts down. If I hit the power button it will shut down. I have tried modifying the Grub but to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.

    you should remove "quiet splash" from /etc/default/grub, then update it (sudo update-grub) to get the verbose mode. So when you will shut down the system,, you will see where/when it hang (probably a driver not unloaded yet, like networkmanager)

    I did this and Chromium stopped working but did see that nothing was stopping it from shutting down. Last line was shutting down in 1 sec. It never shut down.

    Do you get check disk at boot? Can be related to this bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...r/+bug/1066484

    The computer boots normally and nothing appears at boot other than the Lubuntu splash.

    Re: Lubuntu will not shutdown properly

    I'm not sure which version of Lubuntu you are using but I have had this issue with Ubuntu 12.04.

    I followed some threads and changed /etc/default/grub file to reflect the following:

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    Change to
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi=force"

    and then do sudo update-grub.

    It is not a perfect fix but works most of the time. This has been an issue for me since Ubuntu 12.04 was released.
    Hope it helps.

    Gifford I have tried this and nothing happens. I wonder if it has something to do with the brand of computer. Mine is an HP.

    Mine is HP also, I do not have the problem on any other computers, just my desktop, so you could be onto something.
    This has been an ongoing issue for me and I have not found a 100% fix.
    It is frustrating as Ubuntu has usually worked without a flaw for me.

    It now is working but when it stops I will try the item listed under 2 at
    http://askubuntu.com/questions/12584...r-off-computer

    Which stated:
    "The solution above worked for a while but then the problem re-occurred. So I removed acpi=force from GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT and added it to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX instead, using the steps above (i.e. GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="acpi=force")"

    I have used both and neither one of those worked. We need the Ubuntu gurus to help us out on this.
