I'm trying to get a reboot instead of shutdown bug and would like to attract more attention to it by changing the product and component. Which one is better than "Other"? I checked all of them and none seems matching well, but I'm sure, I'm missing something.

I assumed that the issues are reviewed and the product and category eventually adjusted by users with necessary permissions.

  • Is this a question about the Linux kernel bugzilla interface?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about picking a field for a bugzilla web page.

I would set the product to "Platform Specific/Hardware" because that's what it seems to be. The reboot behavior you are describing in the launchpad report seems to be closely tied to your laptop's mainboard. Possibly this could also go under "ACPI", but I think that would require further analysis from someone more knowledgeable with how shutdown/reboot works on different platforms.
