[Bug 1036879] Re: reboot never shutdown and restart the notebook


One year ago I tested with upstream kernel 3.5.1.
After a year was asked to upgrade the BIOS, done.
Then was asked to test the newly released upstream kernel 3.11.0, done.
You wrote "Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's Status as Confirmed", done, and now you removed the confirmed state.
Now was asked to test with another distribution, I installed an LTS because do not want to change distribution often.
What are the real plus of this last test?

  reboot never shutdown and restart the notebook

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  with this notebook (Asus K50IN), the reboot does not work, while a
  simple shutdown switch off the notebook.

  Sending a reboot command, either via Gnome shell, or init 6, do all the shutdown procedure, until "the system is restarting",
  but never do the restarting. I had to switch off the notebook by hand, holding the switch for 4 seconds, and then switch it on again. Same with upstream kernel 3.5.1
