Shut Down taking an age...

#1 Post by rickc » Thu Nov 08, 2018 12:04 pm

Seems to take about a minute for Shut Down to actually shut down...

No idea how to troubleshoot this - any ideas?

As a first step, to help others help you, use Quick System Info from the MX Tools menu to generate some details of your machine, then paste that into code tags here on the forum.

Is this a fresh install?
Did the problem start after you changed or added something?

It's not a fresh install. The only recent change I've made is to install Steam, which I doubt would interfere with shutdown. I think yes it's systemd

Apologies in advance for not pasting the quick system info correctly, as I don't know what code tags are :)

My partition is nearly full - could that be a problem?

Thanks
