Computer hangs on reboot or shutdown, typically for >10 mins, Ubuntu
16.04 and previous versions
Status in systemd package in Ubuntu:
I am aware of the thread here:
People there are asking that if you have the same/similar bug to
report it separately, so that's what I'm doing.
What I've noticed is that my shutdown process hangs as some point,
usually with the screen being black or with a single cursor. After
>10 mins, the computer will finally shut off. I've had this issue I
think since 15.04, definitely in 15.10, and now still in 16.04.
I've tried the fix
$ sudo systemctl reboot
which worked one time, but not another time.
I've also tried
$ sudo swapoff -a sudo systemctl reboot
and that appeared to work, but I haven't tested it enough times to say
it always works. For what it's worth, turning off the swap probably
took longer than my typical black screen shutdown so it's really not a
stopgap fix either way.
I know this isn't enough information to be sure I'm having the
swap/systemd failure, so let me know what else you need. Thanks.
