Peppermint fails to shut down
« on: January 18, 2017, 10:31:35 am »
My desktop machine sometimes fails to shut down. How is this possible ? How come that sometimes it shuts down and other times it doesn't and just sort of hangs in there while the monitor is already off ?

Any feedback much appreciated !

Does it shut down eventually after about 2 minutes ?

When it hangs on shutdown, if you hit the "Esc" key does anything show onscreen ?

Well no and no.  When it hangs it hangs until I force it to shut down by pressing and holding the power button. Can't press ESC either 'coz monitor is off by that time.  Monitor goes down every time unlike the machine.
