http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, I've a "small" problem with my laptop, a Dell Inspiron 15 7537. The pc mounts Slackware64 14.1 with kernel 3.10.17 (KDE) but I've been forced to add Fedora 20 (KDE) in dual boot because Slackware doesn't want to turn off. The machine seems to turn off, but after few seconds it restarts. I've tried to append "acpi=force" in /etc/lilo.conf, but nothing changes. The only way to turn off the pc is to give one of these commands from command line: Code: halt -fihp poweroff -fihp But this way is a bit "dirty", IMHO. If I try poweroff, shutdown -h now or halt comma (HowTos)
