Vector light does not shutdown pc
« on: May 24, 2012, 10:43:17 pm »

When I click on 'shutdown', vector seems to close, but the pc is still on. I see a lot of text on the page which ends with

[ 5494.595086] System halted.

How do I make the shutdown button shutdown the pc as well?

Check to make sure you acpi is enabled and that your bios supports it.
