    If you are using Linux Mint then the drive should appear in computer - file browser but will not be mounted. If it does not show try the reload button.
    Is an icon shown for sdb5 ... it may just be shown as 500GB Volume?

    Assuming you can see the volume ... right click on it, select properties from the pop-up menu, click on the volume tab and type sdb5 in the mount point (you may need to click on settings to show the mount point), then select close. Right click the volume again and select mount from the pop up menu.

    Press alt+f2 and type
    Code:
    gedit /etc/mtab
    this will open mtab in gedit ... the last line should be /dev/sdb5 /media/sdb5 ......

    Press alt+f2 again and type
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/fstab
    this will open fstab in gedit.

    Copy the last line in mtab and paste it as a new last line in fstab, save fstab and exit.

    Shutdown and restart the system and you should have sdb5 automatically mounted.

    Could be something to do with the acpi=off in the boot parameters. You should be OK just to turn it off ... but you could try displaying the text as the system shuts down & confirm it does everything is should while shutting down.

    i posted it in another forum heres the solution for me anyway

    modify (as root) /etc/modules
    and add the following line at the end of the file:

    apm power_off=1 {press ENTER]

    then restart the system
