The shutdown from the UI rarely works for me. It has been very iffy in versions for the last 4 years. Someone might be able to place insight on directly why. But for a resolution you can install cairo-dock and use that UI shutdown problem free. You can install it with: $ sudo apt-get install cairo-dock Now run it from the Launch button. Use this ...

I had the same problem with my new intel motherboard and core i5 processor, Ubuntu 14.04.1 64bit OS. I tried to disable wakeup from LAN from bios and did not get any success. Then I modified GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" acpi=force apm=power_off. Still no success. One of my colleagues suggested that, ...

I've tried everything that's been suggested but unfortunately, nothing worked. I already disabled wake on lan but the problem still occurs. However, after reading this bug report i found out that the bios settings causes this behaviour. It says there that you should enable keyboard and mouse power on. Now the reboot on shutdown is fixed.

The below link helped me for a solution. https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/upstart-devel/2009-December/001140.html "This means that you could just do (as a file in /etc/init): start on stopped $JOB RESULT=failed PROCESS=respawn exec /sbin/reboot You can make that more generic if you like, a job that should cause a reboot when respawn fails could have ...

Had the same problem today, found this: ubuntu forums. The one that worked for me was to disable wake-on-LAN option in the BIOS. Surprisingly (or not) I am using a Gigabyte motherboard too. Hope it helps.

You can do this in dconf editor. You can install this with sudo apt-get install dconf-editor See below for the adjustments to make. You can also choose to suppress the restart menu item (among others) Suppressing the menu item will remove the option from the menu in the upper right corner of the screen. (After a reboot). Of course the option won't exist ...

A couple of things to try: Add a line to the following file: /etc/default/grub when you open the line will most likely read: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" change this line to be: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi=off" when you're all done you need to update grub for the change to take effect sudo grub-update I believe the ...

First of all I thank the members Takkat and David Foerster for the help. :) The solution I've found: If you have problem like this post, one solution is get the consolekit and insert the following code in your bash script to shutdown the system: /usr/bin/dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest="org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit" ...

The syntax for shutdown from command line is sudo shutdown -P now ## for system POWEROFF sudo shutdown -h now ## for system HALT or POWEROFF If that did not work we can also perform a forced poweroff sudo poweroff --force In case we start the script from a user session (as was the case in a custom session) we can either allow users to shutdown without ...

I face this problem a lot on my AMD A8 processor with ATI Radeon graphics. Fortunately for me,a simple workaround,works well(like 9 out of 10 times). Ensure that the laptop is plugged(i.e., it is connected to a power source) whenever you are shutting down the system.Some system resources might not be getting enough power required to complete its task.

I'm not sure if this helps you but there is a terminal command for shutting down your computer. sudo shutdown -P now You have to be root to do so, that's why the sudo. shutdown is the command you would like to preform, -P is the option in shutdown to power off once it's complete, and now states that you would like to shutdown the computer now. I hope this ...

Figured it out. The solution was the following line missing from /etc/pam.d/common-session: session optional pam_systemd.so I can only assume that this line was added to common-session in a recent update and, because my pam files are managed via puppet, I had yet to reflect this on the template puppet was deploying.

You'll need to setup a script to automatically run on shutdown. See http://askubuntu.com/a/564674 Create /etc/init.d/vagrant with this content: #!/bin/bash vagrant global-status | awk '/running/{print $1}' | xargs -r -d '\n' -n 1 -- vagrant suspend Make it executable and link it into the shutdown run modes: chmod +x /etc/init.d/vagrant ln -s ...

The privilege to shut down or restart without root is managed by ConsoleKit. While the mechanism for how this works is changing as a result of systemd and logind, sending the following ConsoleKit message should still work to shut down without root: /usr/bin/dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest="org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit" ...

After some further research, I have discovered a much more proper and reliable way of doing this. First, you add an LSB header to your script that defines the runlevel settings you want to use and then put an executable version of the script in /etc/init.d. After doing this, you can use the update-rc.d command to add the script to your desired runlevels. ...
