    Ubuntu Frequently not Rebooting/Shutting Down


    Hi All,

    I'm having an issue where Ubuntu frequently fails to reboot/shutdown from the menu while it will suspend just fine. I can reboot/shutdown via terminal and root privileges always. It's not a consistent problem so I'm not sure how to really diagnose it, any suggestions, gets old having to sudo reboot every time

    Almost sounds like a program or service with only root permissions is hanging up.
    I'd check the log files and see if anything is listed as hanging or not responding.
