I am a new linux user so i am not familiar with what actually is needed to check. When shutting down or trying to restart i get a screen with yellow letters and the system does not close or restart. I have to shut down manually. I can't type all the numbers but i will give the last ones. [90102.232650] [ end-trace 435966f5b367871 ] this seems to have happened after i downgraded the xorg so i can get drivers for my ATI card (Radeon HD 4850). The suspend command works fine.

Maybe the way you downgraded xorg was wrong.

I know the problem with drivers for Radeon HD 4xxx series. Remove your driver and install as usual. After that try this way:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:makson96/fglrx
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install fglrx-legacy

Restart your computer.

This repository provides AMD Catalyst drivers for legacy graphics Radeon HD 2xxx - 4xxx for Ubuntu:

  • 12.04 Precise Pangolin
  • 12.10 Quantal Quetzal

In my case I downgraded the Xorg to install the driver for my ati card, I uninstalled the driver because it didn't shutdown anymore, after that I upgraded and updated and the video appears as Gallium 0.4 on ATI RS780MN. now it makes a faster shutdown. I hope this can help in any way..

I also have an ATI Card. I found that it you install / update the driver and then run the following command in terminal:

sudo update-grub

After that has run then shutdown using:

sudo init0

Then restart your computer and try to shutdown the normal way.

The second command it said it does not exist –  user108264 Nov 15 '12 at 14:56
sorry it should of been sudo init 0 but just restart it via your power button or something, if it doesn't work. –  lordqwerty Nov 15 '12 at 15:43
