comment Shutdown just logging out
Related questions askubuntu.com/questions/621732/… askubuntu.com/questions/244239/… askubuntu.com/questions/122304/shutdown-or-restart-logs-out I'd flag as duplicate but I'm not familiar enough to know if this is the same situation, particular as that last one.

comment Shutdown just logging out
After attempting to do this does anything relevant appear in /var/log/syslog such as an error about unable to shutdown?

comment Normal speed range for chassis fans
48214 rpm is clearly a bug, above 10,000 rpm you're talking pretty large amounts of energy to spin something that fast (therefore generating heat), a little plastic fan won't be able to go over say 4,000 without a lot of effort.

comment authentication problem,no knowledge of ANY PASSWORD
What is the output of sudo apt-get update? If it asks you for a password, use your own account's password.

comment Why is /tmp getting cleaned out in Ubuntu 15.04?
For this I use a "Temp" directory in my home directory, eg ~/Temp as /tmp has a system specific purpose and I don't want to pollute the global /tmp. That said, good luck on solving your problem but I'm sorry I don't personally know how to solve it.

Just out of interest, why do you want to keep files in /tmp after reboots?
