Press <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<F1> and log in as "root." Then issue the command "shutdown -hP now" and watch the screen for any error messages.

If you se any, tell us what they are.

If "shutdown" works from a console, then it seems likely to me that your problem is related to the GUI/Shutdown interface.

In KDE, go to Settings->System Administration->Login Manager, click on the "Shutdown" tab and verify that you have permission to run shutdown. (There's a similar setting in GNOME, but I can't remember its exact location.) I suspect that you'll find that the settings are correct, since -- from your description -- the "shutdown" process at least started when you were in KDE or GNOME.

Perhaps it's a X-server thing. Can you do a Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to restart the X-server? When the server is restarted you should be presented with your "Login" window. Somewhere on that window should be a button labeled "Menu" or something similar, and one item in the menu should be "Shutdown." See if you can find it, and let us know if it works.

The point in this exercise is to see if, perhaps, your shutdown is being "blocked" by some process that's running on your system in one of your workspaces, and restarting the X-server might stop that process (although it's more likely that it would persist across an X-server reboot.)

Now that's very strange.

Open a terminal window, enter the command cat /var/log/Xorg.*.log* | grep '(EE)'. You should see output something like this:
Code:
$ cat /var/log/Xorg.*.log* | grep '(EE)'
        (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
        (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.

(EE) AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI capable
        (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(EE) AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI capable
If you have any errors displayed (like those above re AIGLX), post them here. If not, let us know and maybe someone else can suggest something to try.

Well, the DRI errors shouldn't be causing the problem, although you need direct rendering for 3-D graphics. (That problem is, I'd guess (not being a user of that card), an incorrect setting in /proc/mtrr. But that should have no effect on shutdown failing.)

Perhaps you should push the "Report" button on you original post, and ask the moderator to move this thread to the Fedora forum. I suspect that your problem is more a "Fedora" problem than a "Desktop" one.
