    Why is My Laptop is halted instead of shutdown ??


    Hi friends,
    I'm using Fedora 7 on acer aspire 5310.
    When shutdown the system sometimes it's shutdown but
    Sometimes when i tried to shutdown laptop using shutdown option from menu.
    The system is halted and the curser blink's and blinks and blinks and ....
    Not shutting down the system.
    What's the issue?Do i need change some setting in inittab?
    Thanks.

    Solution :

    I didn't see this thread until now. You mean the physical power button? What you have is probably some kind of ACPI failure. Many laptops have that, as they all seem to need a different setting... it's often a little experimentation before you get it to work.

    You might try adding this to the kernel parameters:
    Code:
    acpi=force pci=noacpi
    It may or may not work, but this is how my machine likes it.

    But I highly recommend trying this first:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i acpi
    and
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i apm
    That may reveal some useful errors. Post here when in doubt.
