Thread: Laptop - (Reboot & Halt)

    Laptop - (Reboot & Halt)

    On my bro's laptops it seems that most distro's dont reset or halt correctly.. I read somewhere that its a bug.. How can I fix this?

    as far as fixing the reboot and halt scripts, I can't help you there. Maybe a google or search will help?

    If you haven't tried the "shutdown" command, maybe that would work better (it always does for me)


    shutdown -r now
    to try and reboot the system (you can use the -h flag for halting it).

    Hope this helps some....

    Will that turn off the computer too?

    No. It will not. Unless you have APMD configured, all it does is it will simply reboot/halt your computer depending on the switch you used. Poweroff command does the same thing.
