    Hii

    If you open a terminal and type

    Code:
    sudo shutdown -h now
    Does that shut the laptop down ?

    Kind regards

    Yup I tried that but didn't work. Shuts down halfway after that I will have to force shutdown by pressing the button on my laptop.

    Hi

    If you boot into the old kernel does it shutdown again ?

    This will eliminate/implicate the kernel or other updates as the cause.

    Hi

    Let's cover one issue at a time.

    That may discount the kernel if you cant shutdown with the old kernel.

    ieee80211 relates to wireless networks and you may have had an update to the wireless subsystem.

    Open a terminal and type

    Code:
    sudo lshw -c network
    Post the back here.

    Also copy and paste this into the terminal

    Code:
    grep " installed" dpkg.log | egrep "2013-02-26|2013-02-25|2013-02-24"
    Post back results

    Kind regards
