I am using Ubuntu 8.04, and it was working fine until a few days ago, the pop screen for ShutDown started taking too long to come(about 3 mins) and in the mean time computer freezes. However, after about 3 mins when it appears everything looks normal and when shut down is clicked, it shut downs smoothly.
