I'm a new user to elementary freya and am really enjoying it - I have installed it on my HP 350 G2 (it's the only os on the laptop) The issue I'm having is it won't shutdown/restart without me having to press the power button.
I have editing the grub file
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset" which fixing the shutting down/restart issue completely but it interfered with the sleep function. Once 'nomodeset' had been added the screen didn't wake up after i opened the lid. I've also tried -
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi=noirq acpi=force apm=power_off quiet splash" which stopped the WiFi working and disabled one of the USB ports. And I've also tried
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pic=nomsi" which also seemed to fix the shutting down issue but disabled the 2 other 3.0 usb ports.
I would really appreciate it if anyone help me with this line of code to get Elementary to close down cleanly?
