Question Shut-down??


When I shutdown Linux, I always have to do it manually by pressing the power-off button on my PC.

How can I make it automatically shutdown like I had in Windows?

Try a modprobe apm if it is successful you should be able to shutdown the machine normally.
good luck.

It sounds like you need to add ACPI.
In the MCC on your boot loader option, on the first screen there should be options:

Enable ACPI
Force No APIC
Force No Local APIC.

You want to put a check/cross/whatever in the box 'Enable ACPI'. Your PC should shutdown normally without you having to manually power down.
(This is KDE desktop BTW).

I looked. Its already ENABLED. (The ACPI)

You see, during the shut-down process it probes a bunch of crap and then at the bottom it says Power-Off. I keep on waiting and waiting and waiting, but it does not want to shut-down by itself like Windows.

Should FORCE NO ACPI be enabled too, because thats the only one thats not enabled.

Try disabling "Force No Local ACPI."

It is already disabled.... Only the Enable ACPI is checked and the
Force No APIC is unchecked.

What should I do?

You might try a search for yourself, we are all here voluntarily. This kind of attitude is likely to deter other users from trying to help. I hope this isn't taken the wrong way. Just some friendly advice.
good luck.

After 239 posts, I'd hope that you would know how things works around here. Did you do "modprobe apm" like was suggested earlier?

Well you might have to recompile your kernel and enable APM as a module...
