For some reason when I log off my copy of Ubuntu Linux will not shut down. I wonder why it's doing this?

If you "log off" your computer wont shut down.

You've to shut down your pc to do that.

Try opening a console and typing "halt" or "reboot" - without the quotes. Then if that works, then the problem is with the GUI you're using (or the way you're using it). HTH.

If you have an older system, try adding these parameters to the relevant grub or lilo menu entry:
Code:
acpi=off apm=power_off

The log files are powerful debugging tools. You might want to analyse your log file for any problems. You can access the log viewer through System -> Administration -> Log Viewer. The two log files you might want to pay special attention to are syslog and kern.log.

If nothing was found, you might want to recreate the problem and restart to check the logs again.
