Unhappy 7.10 Ubuntu upgrade no longer shuts down


I just upgraded from Feisty to 7.10. Problem is that when I try to shut down, the system hangs- screen blanks and PC stays on but the system doesn't respond to keystrokes. I have to do shut down and then, on reboot the system does an fsck always finding errors.
Suggestions please!!! Thanks, Emil

Have you tried shutting down from the console? try either of these commands.
# shutdown -h now
or
$ sudo shutdown -h now
Keep your eye on the text (if any ) it may give you some clues about whats happening.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the tip. Sadly the screen blanks and the computer stays powered up, but not active. I have to turn it off and do fsck- always finding errors. HELP!!!!!!!!

I had this in feisty, turned out it was to do with the fglrx drivers, do you have an ATI card installed? Try installing the latest drivers, or reinstalling them.
