[Bug 1013620] Re: [Acer AO772] shut down fails


Kurtj, as per http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers an update is
available for your BIOS (1.11). If you update to this following
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BiosUpdate , does it change anything?

If not, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

Please note your current BIOS is already in the Bug Description, so
posting this on the old BIOS would not be helpful.

For more on BIOS updates and linux, please see

Thank you for your understanding.
