Hello ubuntu forums! First I just want to say thanks for all of the awesome help you have provided for other people because it has really helped me!
I am a newb to Lubuntu and these forums so sorry if I am difficult to help out
I have been having a problem with my installation of Lubuntu 12.10. I am using an IBM NetVista 8307.
So far I have tried reinstalling Lubuntu twice, but I have had the same issue:
When I click the Shutdown button at the Logout Screen, The computer shows the Lubuntu logo and the blue and white dots, then it restarts, instead of shutting down. My BIOS is set to "stay off on power failure", if that helps.
However, I am comfortable and familiar with general UNIX and the command line, so if you want me to run stuff on the command line that's fine.
So really I am just trying for it to actually shut down. It's kind of a pain to hold down the power button instead.
