Shutting down the computer using the menue does not work always correct. It often does not complete turn off the computer. The power LED and the LED of the bluetooth unit remain on. Also the fan is still running and won't stop.
Shutting down the computer with "sudo shutdown -h now" using the terminal works fine.
I am using a Dell Inspiron 1720.
