Apart from the terminal and power button path, there is one more way using regular keyboard shortcuts. Press ctrl + f10 to take the focus to top bar.

Set up a sudo shutdown -h now in tty ahead of time, press Enter, type in your password and don't press enter. When you want to shut down, Ctrl+Alt+F1 and Enter. You can also restart in tty by Ctrl+Alt+Delete without a sudo, but then you need to shut down before it restarts.

I think the simplest way is to press Power button on your keyboard. Just go to Power Option and set Power key to shutdown your pc.

The quickest way to PROPERLY shut down any PC running Ubuntu Linux that I know of regards something that can only be properly described as a sort-of keyboard shortcut when using a laptop. You merely TAP (do not hold down) the power button. This causes a shutdown dialogue to appear in which the highlighted option is SHUT DOWN, so if you then press the ENTER ...

You can also use the terminal Ctrl+Alt+T and type: sudo init 0

Hit the power button. Use arrow key to go to "shutdown". Hit Enter. It works with all Ubuntu versions, and it is (to me) the quickest way to shutdown a machine.

Do you have the Plank installed? I had the same problem, after install the Plank dock and set it to start with the system. If that's your case. The workaround for this problem is just add a time delay to this startup program. Go to the terminal and type: cd ~/.config/autostart/ gedit plank.desktop (replace "plank" for the name of your autostart file) ...

I propose that this should be achievable via the unity dash by typing the super-key then "reboot" (without quotes): https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/+bug/1403293

The more probable reason is the overheat of processor. So after the next turn off, just go to BIOS, and check temperature sensors. So after the next load of the linux check temperature of LM sensors with: sensors-detect systemctl enable lm_sensors.service sensors Or use psensor GUI software. Also read the article on how to setup and check the temperature ...

Maybe it is overheating? You can install the program "sensors" from the terminal (type in sensors and it will tell you how) and check the core temperature whenever you want by typing in sensors ("turning off" suggests that it is shutting itself down and not just cutting out suddenly (as if the power went), which is why I am thinking overheating.. )

That's NVidia for you: instead of being compatible with VESA modes, they're only VGA (and maybe SVGA) compatible, which gives you ugly boot and shut-down screens. See also: Linus Torvalds on NVidia Press c on grub to get in the console and then enter videoinfo. Note down the highest resolution and color depth available. E.g 1920x1080x32. Load ubuntu and ...

If you boot off the bootable CD/USB & select the 'Try Ubuntu' option you will have a working system; plug the USB drive in, it should mount; you should also have an icon for your main (corrupted) drive, which you can double-click & it, too should mount. Assuming it does, you can navigate to your files & copy them safely to the USB drive. If this ...

I fixed the problem by updating my BIOS. Last time I checked there wasn't any update.

I solved the problem by editing both /etc/init/modemmanager.conf and /etc/init/network-manager.conf via adding a line to them: kill timeout 1

This is most likely an overheating problem - does it feel hot? You can install lm-sensors / gkrellm for a real-time temp. display to check - or you could just try blowing out the fan vents or a laptop cooler, if you have one - assuming it's not a new laptop (in which cae, consider warranty..). 4 hours seems a long time for a software fault, especially if ...

Disabling of "wistron_btns" also work on Acer Travelmate 2420 & Ubuntu 14.04. Tested Bootloader Kernel line" "apm=power_off" and "acpi=force", both of them worked.

This method is better than the others since the problem is solved and Cairo Dock starts with almost no delay. Edit /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/cairo-dock/cairo-dock-launcher-API-daemon as root. Add the following line at line 33: from time import sleep and the following line at line 241 (just before ULWatcher()): sleep(5) Then, restart the session. If ...

What you need to do is create an Upstart job. Let us say your script for stopping VMs is available at /some/path/vagrant-stop.sh. Depending on the exact nature of your VMs (are they run only when you're logged into a GUI, or are they run when the system starts up, etc.), you could use either a System job or a Session job. For the case where the VMs are run ...

You said that there is no waiting time when you type sudo reboot, right? Well, if that's the case, you can just open up gedit, type in sudo reboot, save it as a .sh file, make it executable and put it in an easily accessible place. Also, make sure to run it in terminal so you can type in the password.

I had a similar problem with my desktop and I fixed it magically by changing some options on my computer BIOS. Here is my question My specs and symptoms are similar to your so maybe this will help you out.

Okay, I cannot solve the problem with the GUI shutdown method, but I had the same problem. The command sudo shutdown now is equivalent to sudo halt which is simply halting the machine. That means it is simply halting the OS and stopping all CPUs. Once the system is cleanly halted, the user may safely hit the Power button on his computer manually. So ...
