My 32 bit OEM 1 gb ram wont shut down after I select 'shut down' from the drop box on the right top corner. Also, when I press the power button on the notebook nothing happens. Help? The machine shuts down / restarts properly when the command prompt is used, 'suspends' then restarts after a few seconds: the output while in suspend contains a few errors; "device already exists", cannot hot-add device", "Link training error", "USB `1-3 device descriptor read 8 (read 64) error" , "failed to check link status"....there is additional code headings that can be referenced if need be. The option to restart also is missing from the contents of the right hand top corner drop box. The initial error I did get twice on startup was that the software center had to 'close unexpectedly'.
Reinstall unity, This works on most cases, and it is reliable because you wont lose anything if something wrong happens ;)
Which drivers have you installed? and services (like apache) they may wont work properly on 13.04, write them so I check them myself and tell you if they have any problems on 13.04 ;)
EDIT: Does synaptic or apt-get commands give you errors?

this could be caused by a permission issue.
