Shut down laptop power off takes minutes

What to do when laptop takes minutes to shut down after power off?

Maybe the logs from journalctl will help? Use the command journalctl -b -1 to bring up the log from the previous boot. Then check the end of the log to see if there’s anything that may be slowing the shutdown procedures.

I remember once I had the same problem and the cause of the problem was akmods service is trying to build something and fail every time ,I do not know (maybe) you have the same problem.

systemctl status akmods.service

I agree with @ertain, but use journalctl -r -b -1. The “-r” will reverse the log, I simply find it more convenient.

Doesn’t this happen at start-up?

Slightly early to suggest a fix before diagnosing the issue, no? :wink:

My suggestion (systemctl status akmos.service) maybe diagnose the issue :smiley: .

There is akmods.service and also akmods-shutdown.service .

systemctl cat akmods-shutdown.service

I do not remember the module that was being built before shutdown .

I do not know in detailed how it works

hit ESC key during hanging shutdown

I guess journald is unable to close the log’s/shutdown and/or needs several minutes to do so ?!

Happens to me sometimes and not every shutdown…

ESC gives a log when closing, very clarifying. Thanks

so you might hard power off the box (long pressing power button) if this happens.
I experienced NO harm so far.

Not nice, but I haven’t investigated it further so far…

Any solutions found for this yet? I just upgraded to F30 and am also experiencing a long shut down time. I’ve looked journalctl -r -b -1. What things in there would indicate what the shut down process is being held up by?

In general, anything that says stuff regarding a “timeout”. Often I find using -e instead of -r a bit easier to read, since instead of reversing the order so that the newest are first, it leaves the chronological oldest-first order but jumps straight down to the bottom.

Having just looked through the output for “timeout” I get that firewalld.service: Failed with result 'timeout'. Is there a way to resolve this issue?

Here’s more info I found on the firewalld.service:>

> Jul 09 07:07:23 bojohnson systemd[1]: Stopping firewalld - dynamic firewall daemon...

You could try setting CleanupOnExit=no as [described here], not the cleanest fix but shouldn’t make a huge difference in this case. Or, if you’re not using firewalld, you can disable it.

How would I know if I’m using it…?

By default, you are. :slight_smile:

You can check with:

sudo systemctl status firewalld.service

.:crossed_fingers: Hope nothing bad happens by disabling it.
I’ve been reading that iptables might be a replacement. Is it a good idea to install this if I stop firewalld?

It is generally not suggested to disable the firewall. It’ll be much better if we can figure out what’s making it crash instead. Could you copy over the output of fpaste --sysinfo --printonly for us please?
