Okay, now things just got a whole lot weirder.  My system says that, qemu-kvm is not installed.
Code: [Select]
andy@andy-Latitude-PM7 /var/log $ sudo apt-get remove --purge -s qemu-kvm
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package 'qemu-kvm' is not installed, so not removed
0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 0 not to upgrade.
andy@andy-Latitude-PM7 /var/log $
So to summarize this weirdness.  The Failed to start LSB: QEMU KVM module loading script appears in the, /var/log/boot.log.  Disabling it with, systemctl disable qemu-kvm fixes the Fail notifications.  However qemu-kvm was never installed in the first place.  To add insult to injury, I can't access any of the log files.  Running:
Code: [Select]
xed  /var/log/boot.log
now produces the following:


While it's loading I can see the log text for a split second.  It then reverts to this.  I've tried different log file and using Pluma.  The result is the same as the image above.

Edit: A reboot appears to have fixed the Character coding error.  The log files are now visible.

I tried Graeme's suggestion about trying different kernels and installed the 4.7.2 kernel.  That didn't make any difference.  The first wake up from suspend, the system froze.  I'm back on:
Code: [Select]
andy@andy-Latitude-PM7 /var/log $ uname -r
4.4.0-36-generic
I'm now staring at screen with a vacant look on my face, talk about bewildered  :)).  You just gotta love systemd  >:(!

Well I've nothing about qemu-kvm in my boot.log  :-\

Does
Code: [Select]
locate qemu
or
Code: [Select]
locate kvm
throw up anything that looks "wrong" ?

Here're the requested outputs.  I can't see anything.  There again, I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for  :-\.   These outputs are colossal and exceed the maximum characters allowed in the forum.  I've copied them to a file and uploaded it to MEGA.  Here's the link: https://mega.nz/#!30V3QKZK!UinBKjVacc9YQCupvgOr8KkI3cVDGrlb1b-Vv6mW_ak.  Thanks for the help.  This one has really got me confused  :-\.

Okay I presume you have gnome-boxes installed ?

It seems that depends on qemu-system-common which has probably set up /etc/rcS.d/K05qemu-kvm to run some other qemu component that isn't installed

I seriously doubt if this is a real "problem"

I'm betting you had this lockup problem before installing gnome-boxes .. right /

I've had this lockup issue since the beta testing days.  The system is booting up and shutting down now without any Fail notifications.  That's a good thing  ;).
