I'm not sure if this is the right place to put it, but I think it is a kernel problem.
Sometimes, when I turn off my laptop, it freezes during power-off. I see the usual messages about stopping daemons and other processes, and then when it displays the [Power Off] message (I think that is what it says), it just hangs until I force a power down (by holding down the power button). This is terribly annoying, and I would really like to fix it. I am willing to recompile the kernel, but all my previous attempts have been unbootable (probably because I accedently removed a module I needed). My uname command gives:
Linux [hostname] 2.6.37-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT [DATE] x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T5800 @ 2.00GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
I have also been experiencing strange shutdown issues since 2.6.37. If I leave it long enough it gives me a message something like this:
note: migration/1 exited with preempt_count 2
WARNING: at kernel/watchdog.c:227 watchdog_overflow_callback+0x...
Hardware name: Aspire 1420p
Watchdog detected hard LOCKUP on cpu 0
Modules: ...<all modules listed here>"
I would appreciate any input on this issue. Thanks.
I have 2.6.37 installed on 5 machines -- shutdown works fine on 4 of them but always hangs on a dell inspiron 1525
Same problem with my ThinkPad R61 - CPU icon disappears and it hangs.
I used to have the same problem on my Atom 330 machine. Turning off hyper-threading in BIOS did the trick for me. Not a long-term solution, but at least my server reboots properly now
but always hangs on a dell inspiron 1525
Yep, I have the same problem on my dell inspiron 1525.
Hmm, I haven't observed it yet on an Core2 duo P7350. Here is some additional info, suggesting that it's a problem with putting CPU offline: http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1094035. I wonder what happens if one disables the CONFIG_LOCKUP_DETECTOR parameter.
Arch Linux is more than just GNU/Linux -- it's an adventure
Hi there, I got exactly the same problem with my laptop. running with root "shutdown -h now" freezes during the Power Off output 99% of the time. Checked the loggs and dmesg but cannot find anything.
Running with Arch Linux 2.6.37-ARCH (64bit)
x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7100 @ 1.80GHz (HP Compaq 6501b)
Running with slim and openbox

My friend running same computer with Arch and Openbox have exactly same issues.

I am the "friend", and I'm getting the very same error (with the same hardware).
Tried without any modules, and without any daemons.
- I can now confirm that the problem disappears when using "nomodeset", although this kills Intel drivers.
