Debian 9 Not Shutting Down Dell Latitude D505

Postby maximus1978 » 2017-07-19 23:40

I have installed Debian 9 on a Dell Latitude D505.

I am not able to shutdown the machines. It seems to shutdown but then leaves a screen powered on all in black. I have to hold the power button to shut completely off. :(

When I reboot, it works.
When I shutdown, it does not power down completely. Strange

The following does work.

Code: Select all
/sbin/shutdown -h now

Sounds like a simple settings problem. Go to System Settings -> System Administration ->
Startup and Shutdown -> Session Management. Under "Default Leave Option", select "Turn off computer", then click on Apply in the lower right corner.

I am using xfce4. I am trying to follow these steps but having trouble.
What Desktop Environment are you referring to?

It has not been mentioned but this is a 333mHz pentium laptop.

Odds are good that it uses apm for power management rather than acpi. The default Kernel config for Debian 9 only enables acpi.

I looked at this several years ago and recall that a custom kernel could be used. Not sure if that still holds.

Hmmm,

Is it a missing package?

Wow
Thanks

Here is my kernel and the config file

/boot/config-4.9.0-3-686
/boot/initrd.img-4.9.0-3-686

Code: Select all
grep APM config-4.9.0-3-686
CONFIG_X86_APM_BOOT=y
CONFIG_APM=n
# CONFIG_APM_IGNORE_USER_SUSPEND is not set
# CONFIG_APM_DO_ENABLE is not set
# CONFIG_APM_CPU_IDLE is not set
# CONFIG_APM_DISPLAY_BLANK is not set
# CONFIG_APM_ALLOW_INTS is not set


I set the following and rebooted.

CONFIG_APM=y

It has fixed the issue. :)

Laptop is Dell Latitude D505 :)
