I recently installed Ubuntu 13.10 on my Lenovo Thinkpad S431, but it can't shutdown. Any kind of shutdown only restarts the laptop. I've tried all sorts of things from re-installing Ubuntu to shutting down from the terminal. I've read many discussions about this issue, but I can't find a solution. Any advice would be great. Thanks!
I would advise you to try and shut it down without any devices plugged in the usb ports. I have read that some devices may cause your PC/laptop to start up after a shutdown.
If that doesn't work you may want to try what this Ubuntu Forums post suggests.
