i installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on my lenovo laptop as dual boot but every time i try to shut down the PC it starts again after 5 seconds or so and i have to press the power button to turn it off

I hope anyone can help me?


I've noticed that it happens only when i'm not connected to the power adapter


I had the same issue with a brand new Lenovo Flex 2 with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. After a lot of trial and error (online research, Lubuntu 14.10 live CD, installed Windows 7, updated BIOS) I fixed it by disabling xHCI on the BIOS. Hope it works for you.
