I’m experiencing the same issues with the same model, and tried many things, like uninstalling Plymouth, and fiddling with the bios, to no avail. Moreover, suspend to ram does not work neither (same symptoms: system is supposed to be halted but the computer won’t really switch off and the fan starts alternating spinning like crazy / being quiet), except ...

Not really sure, but if you just want to shut down your PC type init 0 (for shutdown) Init 6 (for restarting the system ) You must be root or use "sudo"

Hello edward torvalds & That coder guy First of all thank you for your response. I was also already thinking about the temperature but I haven't been doing anything specific which should be heating it so much for an emergency shutdown. It has happend now three times while I was working with eclipse. I had Psensors already installed (and runing it ...

we meet again ;) Best thing to do is to check BIOS before doing anything. Set it to default and try it again. I'm sure your system is up to date on all software, this is 99% a hardware, not a software issue. My Sony Vaio SVS had the same issue until I flashed new BIOS. P.S. If you are running dual boot, try to update your BIOS via Windows.

(If I understand your question) If you can boot without the BIOS ACPI and able to boot in, you should look at the syslog. It records everything from the very start of the computers boot cycle and what is causing it to fail to load. nano /var/log/syslog

My suspicion exactly like That Coder Guy: overheating. To be absolutely sure, install package "psensor", run it constantly on one of your desktops, enable sensors logging on a mount volume without write-back cache (or turn write-back off for that volume temporarily) If none of the above makes sense to you, post a comment and we'll get back to you! P.S. ...

After you restart Ubuntu you can succesfully shutdown your laptop! ...

shutdown does its job by signalling the init process, asking it to change the runlevel. Runlevel 0 is used to halt the system. So when run level changed to 0 i.e init 0. init get killed . Actually init is the parent process of all processes running in system. if parent process died then all child process will become zombies i.e they are not real ...

Ubuntu will send the SIGTERM signal to allow running applications to gracefully terminate and close their open processes. Only if an application does not listen to SIGTERM it may be killed. In case a running application needs user interaction (test this with an opened unsaved document from LibreOffice) the shutdown will be halted until the user interacted. ...

As per my experience with Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. When you shutdown your computer, the kernel automatically sends a close notification to all open programs. It then shuts down after killing all processes including networks. Windows have a feature which works a little bit differently, if open processes require a file to be saved, the shutdown ...

Could be a few issues. The battery itself could have an issue or defect in it, depending on how old the battery is. I had a laptop I had when I was a lot younger that I always left plugged in and destroyed my battery so it couldn't hold a charge. Also, how hot does your laptop get? Laptops typically shut themselves down to prevent damage if they get too ...

I have this problem. Disabling 3D Acceleration in Bios seems to fix the problem. Press F1 or F2 on start up (or on the system settings in the grub) and disable 3D acceleration. Let me know if this fixes the problem. I have tried three or four shutdowns with no problem, but the problem might return.

To confirm whether or not this is in fact Ubuntu and not simply the battery aging, try manually shutting down: sudo shutdown -P now That will ensure it truly powering down. If the battery then still drains, you know it's not Ubuntu that is causing it.
