Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 on Acer Aspire V5-121. I am able to shut down the computer through graphical user interface. But commands like "sudo halt" and "sudo shutdown -now" do not work. They start the shutdown process showing final Ubuntu screen. But computer does not power-off.

Any solutions for this?
