The Rolling reboot

When I left Windoze behind I sighed a sigh of relief that all my woes are behind me.
One however seems to have followed me.

The Rolling[continuous reboot] when closing down or hibernating the system will immediately reboot
How can I get over that one please.

Open a terminal & see if this command works.
sudo shutdown -h now
You can also check settings in powermanagement which also controls shutdown, suspend & hibernate.

Another note is that when I was running Ubuntu 10 I had problems with the gnome powerbutton applet, if you right-click on it and select "About Gnome powerbutton applet there is a website that lists the bugs and solutions
My workaround was to create or add shutdown to my menu under "System" but you have to create the command for the new menu item. the 1 that I used was gnome-session-save --shutdown-dialog.
