When I log out and want to quite Madriva 2005 Linux, my laptop switches off... but really switches off, so I can't start it again (no electricity). I have to disconnect the battery, wait ten seconds, connect battery again and only then can I boot again.

Laptop is one of the AJP laptops. I tried to stop various services... but no result.

Any idea?

[quote="biki"]When I log out and want to quite Madriva 2005 Linux, my laptop switches off... but really switches off, so I canThats a very odd problem. I can only really suggest backing up any important data and doing a reinstall, maybe even of a different (and better!) distro. Have you tried using a live CD such as Knoppix and logging out of that - worth a goas an alternative to reinstalling straight away.

Let me know how you get on - sorry I cant be any more help

Instead, in KDE of using button Turn off... I use restart...
And when BIOS stars loading again, I do hard reset.
Then i can boot Linux (or Windows... I have GRUB) with no problems (apart from not to forget to do restart instead of Turno Off.)

i had and still do Rolling Eyes have a modem problem with mandriva so i thought i may have done something wrong so i went for a complete new install and the screen repeatedly froze the only way around it was to just turn the power off Rolling Eyes i'm now going to do a fedora install and see how that goes Cool

seriously if you can't get your speedtouch to work in mandrake then you won't get it to work anywhere else unless you actually do exactly as instructed, even I know that and I am exceedingly dim Wink
