I just switched to Mint from Ubuntu and I had this problem with the Ubuntu Distro and I fixed it through the Ubuntu Forums but now I can't find or remember how to fix it. When I shut down my laptop I goes through the splash screen and what it normally says afterward is [*********]Power Down, but instead I get a blinking cursor at the top left corner at which time I need to do a hard shutdown by pressing the power button (which I know is not a good thing to do). I know this is a bug that Ubuntu has and since Mint is from Ubuntu it has it too. It's a real easy fix I just can't remember what to do, something about going into the terminal with sudo something or other into source.list down to line 26 or so and adding something to it save file and that should shut off the wlan0 after the splash screen. Can someone help.
