I’m affected by this as well: random “Windows-with-a-surprise-update”-like shutdown speeds.
Because the problem is somewhat random and happens on shutdown, I think it’s gonna be quite hard to diagnose.
@Etamuk: can you please do the following:
- Edit your file
sudo nano /etc/default/grub ) and change the line:
- Then run the command:
Starting next reboot, this will give you more verbose informations about the steps your machine takes during Startup and Shutdown, instead of splashing the Ubuntu MATE logo.
I’ve noticed a few things that maybe you will be able to confirm:
- The shut down process doesn’t always hang on the same steps. I don’t know what steps they are but they must immediately follow the following because I can often see those messages long enough to take notice:
[ OK ] Stopped Raised Network Interfaces.
[ OK ] Stopped D-Bus System Message Bus.
[ OK ] Stopped target User and Group Name Lookups.
[ OK ] Stopped crash report submission daemon.
[ OK ] Stopped CUPS Scheduler.
- I think there’s a way to make the problem happen more frequently but I can’t be sure because well, random. Anyway the method I use is to ssh into the machine from another machine and to stay logged in while I start the shutdown. It appears to happen way more often when I do that.
Here are my system specs, note that I’m also using a SSD:
