Cant shut down PC

I cant seem to shutdown my computer from KDE 4.8.2. All services seem to be halted from i get to see from the console that shows for a few seconds, but then it just idles at the green “screensaver” with the lizard with the moving eye.

It does shutdown if i go to console and type in as root “poweroff”.

This is on openSUSE 12.1

No one else having this kind of trouble?

I do regularly on some machines and press the reset button to reboot. If I had to turn off the computer, I would press the power button. Sounds like a systemd bug. It doesn’t happen every time though and seems to be more often on UEFI hardware (but I had to reset a BIOS based machine running openSUSE 12.1 yesterday). So you’re not the only one.
