Title: Solve linux freeze shutdown problem (freeze on shutdown)
Post by: DARKBOW923 on June 03, 2018, 05:42:33 pm
Hi all, first, sorry for my bad english, but i need to put this tutorial here.

Today i found a solution to my problem, my problem was my linux machine freeze on shutdown, not take's too long to shutdown.

Okay, only if your linux machine freeze on shutdown you can make this tutorial, if your problem is other than i expose on this tutorial, don't follow this steps

Okay, i tested this method in my new linux mint, but i see that worked for me on peppermint 8 machine, so here are the requeriments:

Minimum  knowledge on terminal emulator.

Distro based on ubuntu/debian

A PC with this problem.

Minimum knowledge of GRUB.

Okay, this steps are too easy to make, just type on a terminal:

Code: [Select]
sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Then navigate to this line:

Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

Modify this line like this:

Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi=force"

Finally, just save and close, then run this command in your terminal:

Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub

FInal step: Restart your machine.

I say an last thin, this worked for me in linux mint 18 and peppermint 8 im pretty sure that maybe work's for you..

Bye!
