After I install the modules for my USB RTL8812AU (wifi receiver) the power does not shut off when it reaches the end of the shut down and it states that the power has reached the turn point off or something like that. It has done it for 2 kernels:
5.7.19-2-MANJARO x86_64 upgraded as a dependency for a Nvidia driver that didn’t work and was removed from the repository. I subsequently installed the kernel by it self and only after installing the wifi driver (rtl88xxau-aircrack……) in both kernels the problem with power off appeared. On an old laptop with an old kernel and an old driver (rtl8812….) this did not happen.
My “inxi -b” gave me:

The important thing for me is the USB wifi works. I can push the power button to shut down the power. I felt I should post the problem as I saw it if someone needed more info to improve things. I am sure part of the problem is my hardware since not everyone gets this problem.
As an addendum: I put in the kernel 5.6… and instead of running the rtl88xxau-aircrack…… after restarting the computer I did it before the restart. Anyway the power turned off like it is supposed to.
