Old computer out, new in. Also with a new problem.....

Whenever I reboot or poweroff my computer; it prepares, then just hangs... just like it's waiting for something. Only solution is to hardboot.
Tried it on vl, mandriva, mint 64, pclos, (ubuntu and debian didnt work at all). So seems to be on all linux distros.
I'm stuck and google has no solution... just others with same problem.
So, where do i turn to? To the vl forums of cource Cheesy

Any Ideas guys?

btw acpi=off didn't do anything Sad

Try disabling wireless. Just deselect it for all runlevels. If you have wicd starting, disable that too.

Just a shot in the dark. If that works, I have no idea how to fix the problem with wireless back up.

Also, hal has caused problems like this in the past. Again, wild guess. Again, no fix I know.

It was a suggestion. To find the problem. You could
also try looking at the logs to find where the failure
is.


It is a problem with the BIOS not Linux.

Hm, I do have the latest bios. But why can windows reboot the computer and not linux?
So there must be a workaround? What logs? /var/logs ?

Windows almost always refuses to follow standards.
Which is part of the reason it is in the security situation it
is in.

Check most of /var/log/

Also dmesg can be of some help as well.

Looks like others have the same problem, even in Windows:

Here is one who found a solution. May not apply to your machine, but worth a try:

Actually I have a similar thinking to you here. In fact, I personally experience it before. But I am not sure whether is it Linux that is causing all the problem. Let’s make this more general before going in to another level. I agree on the point that sometimes the wireless is giving a lot of problems. Did you suffer from disconnection all of a sudden but your icon tray shows that it is still connected? And when you try to shut down is there something saying to end process of the local area tray or something. If yes, this might be the root of the problem.
