Did you get any error during shutdown? – karthick87 Jan 11 '11 at 18:20
Thanks for answering Bobby, the computer blocks to the last screen all black with only ubuntu written and completing dot under and nothing happen waiting hours.. – haltman Jan 11 '11 at 18:23
@ karthick87: No, I do not get error – haltman Jan 11 '11 at 18:24
The receiver signal it's USB maybe some problem due to this? – haltman Jan 11 '11 at 18:31

I don't get it, but just to answer the shut-down part: press the power button on the computer. Sixty seconds later, it will start a shutdown.

Yes I do but how to stop this problem? – haltman Jan 12 '11 at 13:42

Same as Christopher said, you can get that Window, By pressing Cntrl + Alt + Delete button also.

There is a way to understand what is the process that goes in error? – haltman Jan 12 '11 at 13:45
Yeah, Try shutdown from the proposed way, see if that works or not. If your system does not shutdown, then Open the Log File Viewer and see the logs. May be that will give you more information to get the correct answer. – SrikanthM Jan 15 '11 at 9:38
