Thread: Shutdown doesnt finish

  1. #1

    Default Shutdown doesnt finish

    Hey!
    I'm totally new to Linux and OpenSuse. I installed it today on my Acer Aspire V5-573G in dualboot with Win 8.1.
    Everything worked fine until i tried to shut my laptop down. It just hung in the splash screen. So i deactivated the spash screen to see what happens.
    Here is the result: (I totally dont get it :/ )

    What can i do to make it work? What extra information do you need?
    Thanks for your help!

    Those are boot messages, not power down messages.

    This definitely is what i see when i try to shudown via the GNOME GUI. Maybe thats still the boot stuff and nothing happened when shutting down?

    I also tried to shut down via console. Exactly the same thing.

    Become root with

    su -
    note the dash
    this will ask for the password
    then shut it down

    Thanks first of all!

    But even with "su" there is exactly the same screen as posted above.
    Another strange thing is, that with "su" the "shutdown -r now" command works (as well as the reboot via GUI). While "shutdown -h now" still doesn't.
    I really totally dont get what is happening here.

    Start YaST and open /etc/sysconfig editor. Click on System, then on Boot. You will see HALT near the bottom of the list of options. Click on it, and you'll see:
    Code:
    File: /etc/sysconfig/shutdown
    
     Possible Values: poweroff, halt, auto
    
     Default Value: auto
    
     Description: 
    
     What should the system do on halt? With poweroff the
     system not only halt the OS but also switch the power
     down. On ix86 or x86_64 this depends on the APM and/or
     ACPI capabilities of the hardware, therefore "auto" will
     cause the system to check about.
    Above this text is a pull-down selector, which is probably set to "Auto". Try changing it to "PowerOff" and see if that fixes the issue. (I believe that PowerOff will become the default action if you do this.)

    try sudo /sbin/shutdown from terminal

    Im afraid that didn't solve it either. But it looks a bit better now, I think:

    Any more ideas?

    Edit: @vazhavadan: The command does exactly the same like just pressing the button in KDE.

    Boot in Advanced - Failsafe. That has acpi and apm off, I suspect either one of them. If a shutdown from Failsafe does work, we could find out where the origin of the issue is.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    By the way: It didnt work with GNOME. I had to reinstall the System afterwards and chose KDE this time. But as you know it also didnt work.
    Only thing i changed during the installation process is the partitioning. I chose a part of my SSD (Win8 is on that one) for root, swap and boot/efi and a part of my HDD for home.
    Ah, and i totally forgot to mention that I'm using OpenSUSE 13.1.9.

    Well, I can kill the System via Reset Button. But as you can imagine i dont like doing that too much.
