Fresh install of 20.2 - Slow shutdown

Hello team -

I installed 20.2 Gnome yesterday on my four-year old System76 machine and everything seems to work well except the shutdown. Seems like it takes several minutes though I’m not especially busy and close out all known apps before the shutdown.

I’m not sure how to troubleshoot. I’m not a technical user but did look for earlier posts and wasn’t sure what to take away. Your thought welcome.


FYI, there is an extra HDD installed (but not running) on this machine. As far as I can tell that drive isn’t mounted but the system does present a dual-boot screen when I start.

Try this:

Hey Wollie -
Thx for the reply. I added that to the bottom of the file mentioned (shown below). Worked once. Other times no. But appreciate the response.
