    Default Shutdown button doesn't work, why?

    When I clicked the shutdown button through the menu, the computer seem to do not respond. And the command line works well.
    Code:
    #halt now
    How can I fix it?

    What Desktop Environment are you using? (e.g. KDE or GNOME) and what version are you using? (e.g. KDE 4.5 or GNOME 2.30)

    If you are using KDE does this work to shutdown? -
    Code:
    qdbus org.kde.ksmserver /KSMServer org.kde.KSMServerInterface.logout 0 2 2

    I use KDE 4.4, the command you give me close some application: amarok, but other application is still working (e.g. chrome, kconsole).

    What happens with reboot?

    Try booting the Failsafe option, does it behave differently?

    Thats strange. That command is a KDE command which is meant to shut down the computer. It is the same as clicking on the shutdown button in KDE menu. Try caf's suggestion - try rebooting and try failsafe mode in the boot menu

    I have tried booting the Failsafe option, no miracle happened. The button in menu leave away, including logout, switchuser, sleep......, all of them did not work.

    Once I have configure the screen saver program, and the screen splashed so that I cannot click the window I want. Is there some relations to this?

    My advice. Don't use screensavers.

    +1
    (screen savers are unnecessary CPU ticks which just add unneeded
    carbon to the planet's atmosphere..."save" your screen by turning it
    off when you are not gonna need it for a while...otherwise, just leave
    it on unmoving/static and therefore not exercising CPU, RAM, power
    supply, hard drives etc etc etc )
