On shutdown the following message is displayed:
acpid: exiting speech-dispatcher disabled; edit /etc/default/speech-dispatcher
The computer hangs at this spot and does not complete a shutdown or reboot as requested.
Manually powering the machine down does work, but I cannot seem to find the culprit responsible for the system hang. I have no proprietary drivers and no updates are listed as available.
Does anyone have an idea of what might be causing this issue?
