Hey so I usually wouldn't ask this but it's sort of bugging me tonight.

I have an old-ish Toshiba Satellite A215-S4697. I just installed Lubuntu, everything seems pretty ok for the most part.

When I shut down it doesn't power off though, which is just kind of irritating. It did the same thing running Mint too, so I'm not sure what to think about that.

I like Lubuntu but I'm not hellbent on using it, and at some point I'll probably give Arch or maybe GhostBSD a try but I'm not quite there yet.

@pagrus Not sure, but you should be able to hard-shutdown once it's done its shutdown thingy, by holding down the power button.

@jankoekepan That's what I've been doing, but it just doesn't feel right

@jankoekepan And in fact the battery is so dead I don't even keep it installed, so it's more like I just yank the power cord out the jack
