While setting up a test box I came across this issue. The shutdown process hangs and waits.
These steps worked for me http://askubuntu.com/a/123287
Edit the grub config
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
Add acpi=force to this line
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi=force"
Save and update the grub config.
When you go to a Sampath Bank ATM and ask for 10,000LKR they give you 5 x 2000LKR notes.
When you go to a Commercial Bank ATM and ask for 10,000LKR they give you 4 x 2000LKR, 1 x 1000LKR and 2 x 500LKR notes.
Commercial gives you sensible defaults whereas at Sampath if you want change you have to ask for something like 11,500LKR.
Sri Lanka has a decent mobile industry. I have a requirement that I think many share, that maybe mobile operators can solve.
I have a tab, a notebook and 2 mobile phones. Here is what I need.
- A data SIM for my tab.
- A data SIM and dongle for my notebook.
- 2 voice sims with data for my phones.
- About 5GB shared data between all the data SIMs
- About 500 mins of voice and 500 SMS shared between my phones.
- 1 e-bill
If you can pull this off plus number portability, you have my business.
Its getting a bit difficult to work with these power cuts. 3 hours in the middle of the day kills a lot of productivity. This is why I got a Macbook (35 watts) instead of a iMac (300 watts).
Working with less resources and being offline maybe a good thing as well. Makes you focus on what really matters.
