I'm using the greatful Ubuntu 14.10.

Sadly logout takes about 1 minute and the cause is unknown, as I installed most of my apps shortly after installed Ubuntu. This slowdown happens since many days I'm using the system with an almost untouched configuration.

How can I investigate? Syslog is not showing any useful information. My hardware is enough powerful to hold my cargo of apps, I never had a lag.

I've reported debug info related to the last logout process.


Thanks to @Takkat now I was able to do a test by typing in terminal ps -aux | grep simone98rc

Now I need your opinions about.

  • possible duplicate (but not answered) askubuntu.com/questions/145573/… – michael Nov 8 '14 at 9:43
  • @Takkat my terminal doesn't support your specified command. I typed "ps |grep -aux simone98rc". – Simone98RC Nov 8 '14 at 18:08
  • @michael_n I'm using the default Unity dekstop environment, but the topic is similar to mine. – Simone98RC Nov 8 '14 at 18:12
  • @Takkat I answered you in the topic question. I fear your user tag wasn't properly added by text editor, so I writed here again ;) – Simone98RC Nov 8 '14 at 19:00
  • Not enough for me to give you an answer but it appears possible that Conky may be in the way of your logout. Only after a timeout logout will then succeed. Try to test a logout without Conky running to see if that resolved the logout issue. – Takkat Nov 8 '14 at 19:33

I see that you are running steam. I am also running steam on 14.04 LTS and only see the issue you are seeing when steam is running. My guess is you have steam auto start?

If you manually exit steam (right click on it in the panel and Exit), then your logout will happen normally.

  • Thanks, I can confirm this was causing the issue for me. Is this issue documented somewhere on steam or did you find out by chance? – bluenote10 Oct 4 '16 at 16:59

Step 1: Go to terminal and type

sudo -H gedit /etc/default/grub

It will open the grub configuration file. Change the line

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" 

to

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" acpi=force apm=power_off

and close it after saving.

Step 2: Again hit the terminal and type

sudo -H gedit /etc/modules

Type apm power_off=1 below lp and save the file.

Step 3: Next type in the terminal

sudo update-grub

Once done with the above steps restart the machine.

  • Shouldn't it be GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi=force apm=power_off" (all between quotation marks)? – Alen Nov 8 '14 at 11:25
  • Are you sure that I need to disable acpi/apm driver? I'm sure that the OS is fully working, otherwise I would have a slow logout since fresh installation. I want to prevent workarounds, especially when I'm the only unlucky user encountering the issues. Thanks likewise :) – Simone98RC Nov 8 '14 at 18:04
