Shutdown freeze (POSSIBLE DEF SOLUTION)
« on: March 30, 2019, 06:46:02 am »
Hello all.

Today, i finnaly solved my problem with linux, the shutdown.

I know i maked an other post with a posible solution, but after peppermint os 7 that solution i found doesn't work for me at all. (Im now in PM9)

So, after 1 year of investigating the problem, (is not a joke)  i found a solution (or a possible really definitive solution).

Well, the things i made was that:

Go to
Code: [Select]
/etc/default/grub 

Then, put this line:

Code: [Select]
noapic acpi=force reboot=b

Then i updated the PM9 kernel 4.15 to 5.0 using uuku

Ok, then i go to BIOS and i set the ACPI enabled and the wake up for USB DISABLED.

Finally, i maked an
Code: [Select]
update-grub
and all should be 100% fine.

That method FINNALY works for me, So its probably that it workds for you too.

If you hit the Esc key whilst the system is shutting down, does it give a clue where shutdown is hanging ?

Hi bro!

No, the funny thing when PM freeze on shutdown is that you CAN'T hit any key/use mouse, it just freeze completily.

But i found this method (im gonna edit the post) and now i can shutdown PM correctly.
