Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When I execute restart or shut down by clicking the button in the drop-down Main Menu the system freezes up. And I have to press the power button to shut it down. If I use the command line "reboot" in Terminal then it works fime. I don't know what is the problem.. and wonder if anyone could help
Another way of getting out of your user desktop, is to ctrl-alt-backspace and that will take you back
to the login window and you shutdown from there.
Kde has a problem sometimes where a app is running and a long delay of shutting down.
The this link should take you there.
Basically, I think the problem was, like mikeyboa was saying, some processing was still running or was stuck, in my case, the system kept trying to accessing my hard drive which wasn't correctly mounted (see the link above), and therefore gnome was waiting for it to finish. After I correctly mounted the hard drive, the problem was solved. So I suggest you check wich 'ps -A' command to see what processing are still running.
I checked my /etc/fsatb file, and it is mounting all the partitions correctly...
Infact, I unmounted all the partitions using umount -a, but now, the roblem is different.
Now, Gnome hangs there and then, instead of Crashing Xserver previously.
I am checking the processes running, but dont know, what to look for there?
Then shut off the system completely by typing poweroff in terminal. After rebooting, notice the list of check list and messages the system give, if there's any process that fails or takes an unsually long time, make a note. Then try shutting down using the gnome interface without doing executing any task. If still doesn't work look into you 'ps -A' list, and by guessing which process might be stuck, you can use the 'kill' command to terminate the application one-by-one, until the gnome interface works.
