I'm not sure what the default action/runlevel is for shutdown. Could you try shutdown -h 0 ?

comment Does the freequent use of CAT command badly affect the hard disk performance?
Sorry, but the point is still valid: cat has nothing much to do with it, it is more the concept that needs checking. As it is dependent on the users hardware you should do field testing with your type of files (kb/s would matter, harddiskwrite and read speed, etc). If the system is swapping you'd get a LOT of performance loss if you keep writing as well.

comment find hidden URL for streaming radio
we're getting a bit offtopic now because there are loads different ways to stream music, and above method works for the .pls method from the initial question. But maybe you can use this link: od.mp3.streampower.be/vrt/radio1/11_11niws-snip_hi.mp3

comment In all sites i have a non-physical look Ubuntu 12.10
It sounds like you are looking at sites without css. Could it be that you are not downloading the css for some reason?

comment Update available message after installing update
Doesn't this update your whole system? That's sounds a bit silly :) Anyway, this question was about what to do if the message doesn't go away. Good to know it probably won't be sticky again tough, but this might be better as a comment?

I'm not saying you are not right, but this is not an answer to the question, should be posted as a comment?

comment Problem starting Ubuntu
If you seriously want help then "does not work" is not the way to get it. What happened when you logged in? Did you get an error? Please describe what happens and if it is a long story, add it to your question. I'm not asking these things just for the heck of it, these are things we need to help you. But good luck with someone else...

comment Problem starting Ubuntu
there might be something wrong. You could try ctrl-alt-f7 (that's where the 'desktop' is), but if it doens't go there I doubt it will work. Better, log in (enter your username and password), and check out what the error logs say (type in dmesg for starters)
