I have Ubuntu 12.04 (to be precise Linux mint 13) installed on my thinkpad T520, running for around 1 year. I am not able to shut down my machine even when I do sudo shutdown now. enter image description here After eliminating all the other factors and uninstall the modem-manager, replace gnome-manager with wicd. It still refuses to shutdown. enter image description here If I do sudo /etc/init.d/networking stop, it can shut down completely. How can I recover my system so it shut down normally without need to stop networking manually every time?
