Thread: SHUTDOWN PROBLEM when on AC POWER (Reboots)

  1. #1

    Default SHUTDOWN PROBLEM when on AC POWER (Reboots)

    Toshiba Satellite C850 OS 12.1 86x64 reboots after shutdown when connected to AC Power. Shuts down OK on AC Power with Windoze. Shuts down OK with battery only.

    With AC power connected, the command 'shutdown -P' and GUI menue "shutdown" results in the laptop doing a hard reboot.

    Applies to OS 11.4, 12.1 and 12.2.

    You could open a terminal session, save all of your work first and then:

    Code:
    sudo /sbin/poweroff -p
    I see lots of complaints on this computer with Linux and not shutting off but doing a reboot. Toshiba is your last resort and it does not appear they support Linux.

    Seems to be a Linux software problem. Windoze shuts down and does not reboot.

    Gentoo DVD does a "HALT" and requires pushing the power switch to shutdown the laptop.

    wait a second: did you do what my friend in Austin recommended? did it
    work for you? if so let us know and maybe we know how to fix it so that
    the menu buttons work as expected...but, you do need to declare what
    desktop environment you are using.

    *if* what James said doesn't turn out to be a step towards a viable work
    around, then try this:

    shut down all running apps and reboot...when the first green screen
    comes up press the down arrow and then type in this command
    Code:
    acpi_osi=Linux
    and press enter..

    does that help?

    Moreover, from my personal experience with this problem, I think the more relevant information is the kernel version. For me restart instead of shutdown occurs on my main desktop computer with any kernel <3.5.x. (which is the case for all standard kernels which are supplied with the above OSs).
    Main box: OpenSuse 12.3)/KDE 4.10 64bit
    Older Box: OpenSuse 12.2/KDE 4.8.5 64bit (my mediabox)
    Laptop: Debian Wheezy/KDE 4.8.4 64bit

    You could give kernel 3.5.4 a try as suggested by Nikos78: S.A.K.C. - SUSE Automated Kernel Compiler - Version 2.78 - Blogs - openSUSE Forums

    I now use the Laptop's POWER SWITCH to safely shut the system down.

    This initiates the shutdown process as if I would have clicked on the “Shutdown” menu item. I can observe this after I have switched to one of the tty consoles (Ctrl, Alt, F2), logged in as root and then pushed the power switch down until the laptop has powered down. It takes a few seconds while I can watch the individual processes being shut down and unwritten data flushed to disk.


    If I can always to see this if I remove the covering boot splash display image by deleting 'splash=silent quiet' from the "Optional Kernel Command Line Parameters" in Grub.

    Kernel used : 3.4.6-2.10-desktop

    Have to make a clean install before I can try the 3.5.4 kernel. Otherwise wireless will not work.

    So, if you are loading a special wireless driver, perhaps, but installing kernel 3.5.4 (or 3.6 now out) does not remove any other kernel version as all will be selectable from Grub 2 which you can try without removing anything else that still works.
