To enable swap
swapon /dev/partition

To enable it at boot time, edit /etc/fstab to include:

Quote:
/dev/partition swap swap defaults 0 0

I think we need more information.

What flavor of linux are you running?

What kernel?

What desktop environment (gnome, KDE, . . .)?

How are you trying to shutdown, with the GUI or from a prompt (what command)?

Have you checked the logs for clues?
