Quite new to Ubuntu/Linux and just installed 18.04 (Bionic) onto my Windows 10 Netbook. 32-bit EFI/BIOS and 64-bit System, used a workaround, but installation wasn't a problem.

The Netbook will not shutdown. It stops forever at kvm: exiting hardware virtualization, sometimes after a longer period it might go to black screen, but doesn't power off. All the terminal commands to shutdown or power off or force shutdown, do not change anything. Still have to push the power button for several seconds to really turn off power. The exxception is

sudo poweroff -f

This does nothing besides causing Terminal to print power-off and freeze at a blinking cursor.

There are other charging problems that likely have the same source. The internal battery charges until a certain point during boot-up, stops charging and doesn't continue (external control LED). I have to physically remove the clinch and plug it back in, then it starts charging again. If the internal battery reaches 100% the same thing happens, charging shuts off and the battery will lose charge, but charging will not start again until I take out the clinch and plug it back in again. The computer is a Medion 1240

I don't know a lot of terminal commands, so if additional information is needed, please ask.

  • this is a nomodeset needed in grub issue. – tatsu Jun 12 at 9:19
  • could you please explain what you mean exactly. Thanks in advance. in grub_cmdline_linux_default I included nomodeset if thats what you meant. Didn't change anything, unfortunately, even after re-boot. – davehor1 Jun 12 at 13:22
  • that's what I meant. unfortunately I was wrong. is acpi=force any better? – tatsu Jun 12 at 13:22
  • I have also tried that inside and outside of the quotation marks, didn't change the power-off problem, however there were some differences in the lines I saw during shutdown. – davehor1 Jun 12 at 13:27
