Shutdown Problems

I updated the system and now I am having problems with the shutdown/restart.

Each time I shutdown/restart , the screen goes black instantly (like the computer is off , showing the no signal text) but the computer keeps running and makes 3-4 beeps one at a time at around 15-20 seconds interval.

The beeps are similar in sound and duration to those that happen when the PC starts but I never had beeps before when shutting down untill now and the process would take less than 5 seconds vs now around 1-2 min.

After that it continues with the process of shutting down/restarting.


systemctl poweroff

But with no luck.

Tried looking in ~/.config/ksmserverrc and it shows:

Noticed the same thing myself on my laptop (attached to an external display) after the July 29 Stable Updates.

KDE as well. Able to reproduce using systemctl poweroff or systemctl halt

Going to try a couple more tests, and see if it’s consistent.

UPDATE: It doesn’t always happen. My hunch is it has something to do with the kernel update to 5.15. There was an update to kernel 5.15 not that long ago that broke suspend on many systems. This might be a repeat of that, but in regards to shutdowns / reboots.

I see the message about “This system is going to shutdown!” and soon after everything goes black. However, my laptop fan is still spinning, and where the CPU sits remains somewhat warm after much time passes. I don’t hear any audible beeps, but the only way to get out of this is to force a hard powercut (by holding down the power button for more than 4 seconds.)

In comparison, a normal shutdown (prior to the July 29 update) cuts off all power. No fans spin, and where the CPU sits feels cold.

If it is indeed the shutdown message with the beep (it came through my usb speakers rather loudly) there is a way to stop it I found on some site. But it only works untill reboot. The command is

busctl set-property org.freedesktop.login1 /org/freedesktop/login1 org.freedesktop.login1.Manager EnableWallMessages b false

If that fixes it you can create a script with that in it, then create a service to activate it on bootup.

You can blacklist the system speaker. (It worked for me.)

  • Text editor: blacklist pcspkr

  • Save as: /etc/modprobe.d/nobeep.conf

Shutdown and restart.

No difference so far

Everyone. It’s not the system speakers beeping that is the issue here.

So after updating my desktop (Nvidia GPU) with the July 29 Stable Update, this issue randomly happens on reboot/shutdown as well.

Basically, a laptop with only Intel GPU, and a different desktop PC with only Nvidia GPU, are both exhibiting this same new issue with randomly stalled reboots/shutdowns ever since the update.

Doesn’t matter if I shutdown via systemctl poweroff or via the Menu Launcher → Leave → Shutdown

I believe it’s due to kernel 5.15.55 → 5.15.57

A similar incident occurred some months ago which randomly broke suspends due to a kernel update that was a part of the Stable Updates.

going to have to look into it more.
