I have Ubuntu 12.04, Kernel 3.8.0-37

My problem is that anytime I restart laptop will not start. System shuts down as it supposed to, but then some beeps go out and nothing happens. Computer is not dead as I hear fans running but system will not start. I have to press button to turn it off and then turn it on again. Everything works afterwards.

Can you please help me to find out what might be wrong?

Can you open a terminal and do sudo shutdown -r now > output.log. Then reboot and copy the content of output.log in your question. –  Buddyshot Mar 12 '14 at 21:41
