Same issue with Compaq Presario CQ56 when rebooting or shutting down
from command prompt.  In addition, if I shutdown or reboot from the
Unity "Shut Down" menu option a logout occurs followed by the login
screen.  Attempt to shutdown or reboot from LightDM does nothing...

  11.10 will not power off laptop

Status in “upstart” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I installed 64 bit desktop version of Ubuntu 11.10 with Unity -
  activated additional drivers (Broadcomm STA Wireless and ATI/AMD FGLRX
  Video drivers).

  Configured Firefox and thunderbird and then installed printer driver.

  When I come to shutdown the laptop I get the Ubuntu logo with the 5
  dots (which should colour in as it shuts down), but nothing else

  I have left it for 10 mins and still nothing - no HDD activity or
  anything.  The only way to shutdown / reboot is via holding the power

  Laptop is a HP 6735S - 4 GB RAM, 300GB HDD.

  Any ideas on how to identify / solve this?
