Ubuntu: Problem with shutting down in Ubuntu Gnome 13.04 64-bit


I have a laptop running Ubuntu Gnome 13.04 64-bit. Whenever I click on the 'Power Off' button from the menu on the top panel and then click 'Power Off', the laptop always restarts (does not SHUT DOWN). Please help me. I also set the power button action in the Gnome Tweak tool to 'Shutdown'. Also, this does not happen everytime. I think it might be some bug.


Have you tried running

sudo halt  

in a terminal?

If that works, try using something like Create Launcher and having the command be

sudo halt.  

Good luck.


Try the answers proposed in

They are most likely the same problem.
