#342 closed defect (fixed)

Shutdown, eComStation 2.0 RC6a

Reported by: eco Owned by: pasha
Priority: major Milestone: Release version 3.12
Component: ACPI PSD Version: 3.14
Keywords: Cc:


ACPI /APM cannot shut down the machine. APM dims the display and hangs. ACPI freezes at "Releasing Filesystems".

Doug Bissett:

That can be caused by having the animation option selected: Right click on a blank spot on the desktop-> Properties-> eShutdown tab, and click OFF both Animation before shutdown, and before reboot. This problem was reported when RC5 appeared, I am amazed that they not only did not turn that off for shut down, by default, but now they have turned it on for reboot. I think that most users would prefer to not hang at releasing file systems, and they really don't care about watching a movie where the screen appears to be an old style CRT, with the fields collapsing.

Do you try PowerOff?.exe ?

Disabling both animation options and selecting ACPI level 3.14, and now my ThinkPad? R61 powers off. (During shut down it gives 3 identical beeps plus one slightly different and then power off, guess this is normal (?))
