I'm hoping you can help. I am a noob linux user. I installed elementary OS 5.1 on my laptop, originally I had an issue with updating apps and with turning the laptop off. App updates are now sorted, however when I turn off the laptop, it goes to a black screen with elementary logo. I have to hold the power button down at this point to turn it off. I am using a HP envy x360 laptop if that helps at all.
1I would like to add, running the command 'shutdown now' in the terminal works without issue. Problem is only when I click the little red power button.– Dillair ShaikhMar 11, 2020 at 19:38
There's an issue with elementary having a slow shutdown in some circumstances. The sure giveaway is that it takes exactly 90 seconds. If that is it, here is the solution: elementaryos.stackexchange.com/questions/18947/…– rifferMar 13, 2020 at 19:30
Now seems to be working fine, perhaps one of the updates fixed the problem, as I've seen that other people had a similar issue.
