When I attempt to do a soft reboot or shutdown, the display hangs and the system is unresponsive for an inordinate amount of time. I therefore have to shutdown or reboot my setup by holding the power button.
- I assume this indicates there are some problems. How severe?
- How detrimental to the system is it to always have to do a hard reboot or reset?
- How do I identify the culprit for my shutdown problems?
System info (what I think is most relevant):
- NixOS 18.03
- KDE Plasma 5 Desktop
I added a video that demonstrates the problem as well: https://youtu.be/e9cqTzmgSws
Here's a pastebin of the logs during shutdown http://nixpaste.lbr.uno/oIus0Aqk?nix
For anybody who runs into this problem in the future, I did find that if I Suspend my computer once after booting everything shuts down just fine. Why? I don't know. That is my current workaround.
