[Bug 983384] Re: Ubuntu hangs on Shutdown and Reboot


Napoleon, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please just make a comment to this?

  Ubuntu hangs on Shutdown and Reboot

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I know this has been reported before and on one such report the status
  seems to show bug Fixed but today is 16/4/12 and i have just applied
  the latest updates to Ubuntu 12.04 beta 2 and the bug still persists
  for me. Basically, when i shutdown or reboot, the screen goes black
  but you can hear the fan running. It stays this way until I press the
  power button for about 7secs or so.

  My own investigation shows that when I log in and don't open any programs and I shutdown or reboot it works fine. Its when I perform my normal work on the system and try to shutdown or reboot then it hangs. Also I noticed that on the occassions that it fails to shutdown or reboot, I don't see the ubuntu name with the animated dots underneath. I am prepared to perform any test and report back to you if you help me.  This seems to still be a problem for many and a quick google search will show.
