Question Laptop Debian 6 Restart and Reboot problem.


I have my laptop setup to dual boot Windows7 and Debian6. When in Debian if I select restart it does not reboot the computer it just restarts Debian6. So...

Does anyone know what I need to do to change the command behind the button to actually reboot the computer?

Much Thanks for the awesome help!

I find this hard to believe.

What bootloader are you using?

Are you on kde4 by any chance? If so, try stopping the acpid deamon and then issue a reboot. to see if it does work.

Also try logging out and using gdm/kdm to reboot. Then try the reboot command from a terminal to see what happens. Please tell us what desktop you are using Gnome, KDE or Xfce???

I have seen this before, when you click on restart you are telling the machine to go back to the system you were using. It is rebooting but it is returning to the OS that you were in previously. If you want to use Windows instead you will need to shut down and manually restart.

I tried logging out and using kdm to reboot. Did not work. I tried shutdown -r now and it does the same thing just restarts new linux kernel and not reboot the computer. My desktop is Gnome. I don't recall this happening this way when I use ubuntu.

You stop the acpid daemon this way (as root)
Code:
/etc/init.d/acpid stop
Keep in mind that my assuption makes acpid "guilty", so if the above works you should NOT keep acpid permanently stopped cause its a laptop and its cpu will work full time all the time etc.
If it does work, you should take care of the laptop's acpi settings (probably in bios) or even do a bios upgrade.

Tried that did not help. Found this http://www.webupd8.org/2010/10/how-t...om-ubuntu.html tried it and it didn't help either. Perhaps I just have a bad install will re-install and see what happens.

Thanks for all the help.

That is rebooting. If you mean that you cannot boot into windows anymore then there are a few causes. Don't reinstall, it probably won't make any difference.

When you boot the computer does the grub menu display?

1. When in debian can you see windows drive & is there an entry in grub?
2. Can you shutdown machine completely?
3. Have you checked to see if grub is hidden.
4. What is grub time to select os?

This is my theory of what is happening

To me rebooting is: Having the computer run BIOS again. Not just restarting the OS.

When I first turn on computer I see a small grub menu without any choice it boots from text mode into graphical grub menu with 4 choices the first 2 are for Debian the next 2 are Windows 7 they say Vista.

I think it may have installed the first grub into the small 100mb partition that Windows 7 calls the loader then switches to the C: where Windows is and gives the graphical choice for grub. Once there I see the 4 choices. Does that explain what I am seeing? Hope so

If that is the case then when I leave the second Grub it would be returning to the first grub and not giving it the signal to restarting the computer. So how do I fix it? BIG question - Looking for easy answer!

Thanks for all the help!
