Ubuntu 11.10 restart and shutdown not working fully

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I have installed Ubuntu 11.10 on an Asus p8z68 v-pro motherboard which is a UEFI bios. The install seems to have worked fine except for one thing, when restarting or shutting down it gets stuck at the Asus bios boot screen when starting up again (or blank screen if turning off the bios flash screen). This means I have to hold down the power button to turn it off and then back on again which boots ubuntu fine. I have read a lot of the other questions and answers here and dont seem to find a problem/solution that matches this exactly. I have ubuntu installed on a SSD and then have 2x2TB sata d (HowTos)
