A couple Days ago my fresh eOS install stopped reacting at all when pressing power-off or reboot.
Shutting down works when not logged in or being logged into the guest account. I cannot figure out why that is, I suppose it has something to do with the removal of xscreensaver but im not sure.
Can someone please assist me in that case?
What I already did:
- editing grub to
- changing the poweroff delay force from 90seconds to 6 seconds
None of that helped.
I have suspected installs:
- timeshift for backups
- additional taskbar that shows minimized programs
- xscreensaver (removed)
- caffeine (removed)
How do I log the shutdown sequence? That would help a lot.
shutdown -h in terminal works but that is no long-time option.
sudo wingpanel after the problem occurred, reenables the shutdown option. Locking results in Error message:

reinstalling wingpanel from pantheon updated the error messages:
