Black Screen on Shutdown => help


I've just installed SuSE Linux 10.0 x86_64 GM. Everything is ok but ... When I shutdown or log out, only black screen appears and stays still. I wait for 15' but nothing else happen. So I always have to Press and hold the power button until my computer shutdowns.
Please tell me what's wrong...
thanks!

huykhoi, does the screen get stuck at Stopping cron? Or do you get a blank screen after this?

Yeap, the screen gets stuck at Stopping cron.
The power is on and I must press and hold the power button to shutdown my computer.
I have to do this every time I use my computer.
