comment How to install Ubuntu with both disk encryption AND SSD caching
I can't really claim to know - but I'm guessing it might be a side-effect of the optimizations involved in minimizing writes to the SSD. Article about IOWait here : thattommyhall.com/2011/02/18/iops-linux-iostat

comment Is stopping Ubuntu at HP Compaq PC by pressing shortly the computer power button OK?
It doesn't sound like the button you are pushing is really the "reset" button. From the behaviour you're getting, it's the ACPI power button. The real "reset" button is usually much smaller and sometimes recessed a little in the case to make it harder to push - because it really does just reset things without prompting. The fact that you're getting a prompt means you're pushing the power button. Shutting down this way is completely fine - it really is just like using the "Shut Down" menu. For the "real" reset button, see the other question linked here.

comment Reboot after shutdown (Ubuntu 14.04 (also 12.04); Dell latitude E7440)
I basically went into my BIOS and turned off every option with the word "wake" in it... I don't need my computer raising itself from the dead like some zombie. This was an HP zBook 15, just in case any other people are suffering with it... it turned on in my bag and overheated itself through a 90 minute drive... seems to be fixed now.
