comment 12.10 wont shut down
go for the heart, try "sudo init 0", if that still reboots, check the contents of your /etc/rc0.d folder for the script "S90halt" Disclaimer, the only Ubuntu machine I have in front of me is a 13.04 box, so file names might have changed, but runlevel 0 will always be your shutdown runlevel

comment Is it possible to close vlc to system tray?
For added convenience, put that command in your start up applications so you don't need to remember to launch it every time.

comment Skype and VLC sounds sizzle/distorted/bad
try replacing that whole section with the following: ### Automatically load driver modules depending on the hardware available .ifexists module-udev-detect.so load-module module-udev-detect tsched=0 .else ### Use the static hardware detection module (for systems that lack udev/hal support) load-module module-detect .endif
