Yes it's another one of those threads. There's so many of them but all quite outdated so I didnt want to screw up my machine by trying any grub based solution.
Basically, I just clean installed Ubuntu 16, and I can't shut down the laptop. Initially it was logging out instead of shutting down, so I did the logout fix.
Now, when I press shutdown, it goes into a black screen with a terminal like "_" at the top left corner, and it's frozen. I have to hard reset to shut it down.
Same goes if I close the lid, or press restart.
sudo shutdown isnt working either.
Seen the below few threads, none of them really help.
Ubuntu 16.04 hangs on shutdown/restart <-- Interested in the second solution but I cant seem to locate and install just that update hes talking about?
Would appreciate any help. Thank you!
Specs: Core i7 7700HQ Nvidia 1060GTX (Currently disabled - running on intel graphics)
Tried Ubuntu 14.04 stuck on shutdown as well but still nothing is working. Really no help guys?
FURTHER EDIT: UPDATE:
I noticed NVIDIA PERSISTANCE DAEMON kept failing to load. If i do
sudo prime-select nvidia to switch to nvidia driver, I am able to shutdown / reboot via GUI. Command line still does not work.
Using intel graphics do not work though. Is there a solution?
