[Bug 1005134] Re: [Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX Notebook PC] 12.04 "hangs" on shutdown when using 3.2 kernel


Stephen Helden, as per http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=4063&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3860070#N870 an update is available for your BIOS (F.54 A). If you update to this following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BiosUpdate , does it change anything? If it doesn't, 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.

  [Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX Notebook PC] 12.04 "hangs" on shutdown
  when using 3.2 kernel

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I've been having a problem, as my system was hanging when I selected
  "Shut-Down" option from the Ubuntu dropdown menu.  This problem was
  remediated when the "Update manager" patched the kernal to a release
  3.4. Now, I was presented  with the latest "Update Manager" patch and
  when I complied, my Ubuntu image file was impacted, and now my kernal
  release is back to "3.2.0-24-generic-pae", and, of course, I'm hanging
  when I select the "shut-down" option from the Ubuntu dropdown menu.
