Shutdown does not power off EeePC

13 Oct 2008

I’ve noticed that issuing a sudo halt on my EeePC 701 shuts down the operating system (eeeXubuntu), but doesn’t power down the system.

So I’d be watching videos on my way home from work, sudo halt, get home, and pull a red-hot E out of my bag – ouch!

Solution (Bug #239145) – add rmmod snd-hda-intel to the stop section of /etc/init.d/halt.
