Had the same problem with 12.1 on another Dell (Latitude D630) - fixed by
the latest systemd patch (29 Feb).
You could also try switching back to sysvinit via F5 at boot time.
The same happens here. Since last update i think… perhaps something related with systemd ( systemd release a patch some days before). It gets stuck when i go to shut down in kde 4.7 and opensuse 12.1. I also have changed to graphical boot and shutdown image…
I suspect that it has some relation with last systemd update.
With system v i cant reboot nor shutdown in graphical mode in kde 4.7.4. If i go to konsole and enter as root ( su) i can halt and reboot without problems.
With systemd: reboot ok, but shutdown it makes all the process go to the shutdown image ( green background with the white lizard). You can hear the disk working, but after a while it doent work… waited about 5 minutes and still there. Had to shutdown manually pressing the on/off button for some seconds.
