Long Sparky shutdown on HP Mini 210
« on: October 07, 2016, 06:31:03 pm »
Hello.  I have a MinimalGUI install of SparkyLinux 4.4 on an HP Mini 210.  I've been very happy with this installation, but I have one small problem.

When I shutdown (using the Openbox Exit menu entry) and remove the splash screen I see the usual shutdown messages until the very end.  The last message says "reboot: power down" and then the machine idles for about a minute or more before the power goes off.  There is no mention of a "stop job."  This happens for both the normal and the quick shutdown choices in the menu.

This isn't a big deal, but I have another 4.4 Sparky installation on a laptop and it shuts down very quickly.  So I was wondering if there is something wrong with my notebook install or if this can be changed so that shutdowns are quicker.

Thanks,
Andy N1KSN

PS.  I've done a bit of web searching on this issue.  It appears to be hardware or kernel related, so it's not a SparkyLinux issue.  Sorry I was so quick on the trigger to post.

There is small issue about mounting/unmounting swap partition and the shooting down/rebooting takes 1.30 min extra to finish.
Hope will be fixed soon.
Nothing is easy as it looks.

You can always see the logs for the end of your last session via

(as root) "journalctl -b -1"
(as user) "sudo journalctl -b -1" and scroll down to the end.
