shutdown does not work at all - cant switch off the notebook - how to check the logfiles

hello dear linux-experts,

have installed opensuse leap 42.1 on a notebook - HP (type - Notebooks hp 14 r 103ng )

well all seems to work pretty well - but if i want to switch off the system then i am not able at all!

hmm - in other words; shutdown does not work at all - cant switch off the notebook - how to check the logfiles?

sometimes it looks like a “freeze” of the system.

What can i do now!?

Among others, I have this problem, too. I configured Ctrl+Alt+T to open a Konsole, such that at least" $sudo shutdown -r now" works for a restart. Should be “shutdown -h -P now” for shutdown. Is it plasma5? I will reinstall with Gnome.

Cheers

Don’t have to reinstall if you want to try Gnome just install the gnome patterns in Yast-software management. Your problem may be the new SDDM program may want to try another DM mabe the KDM or GDM or lightDM.
