Software :: Automatically Shutdown Computer At Specified Times

Jun 13, 2011

I'm looking for a program or script that will automatically shut down my computer at specified times. The thing is, if I happen to be using the computer at those times, I want it to ask me if I want to shut down before it does it.

Something like I want the computer to shut down at 9 am every day. When it's 9am, a prompt pops up and says, "Do you want to shut down or continue running? If you do not answer, the computer will automatically shut down in 10 seconds." Not sure if something like this is out there or not.

Ubuntu Networking :: At Times Desktop Computer Can't Establish Wired Connection?

Aug 3, 2011

My desktop computer, running 11.04 (fresh install) sometimes can't establish a wired Ethernet connection. Sometimes when I boot, it keeps trying to establish, but with no luck. I keep trying to choose "Auto eth0" from the networking menu, but still, it doesn't succeed. If I reboot, it sometimes works. I can't establish a connection about half the times that I boot.

The computer is connected with a cable to a router ("Belkin Wireless Pre-N router"), and the router is connected with a cable to a cable modem.I've been using Ubuntu for a while, and I've had a problem for the past few versions (since around 10.04)? I thought that it might be some old issue that got resolved, so I did a fresh install of 11.04 today, and still have the same behaviorI'm willing to try things next time I can't get a connection, but don't know what.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Reboots Automatically As Soon As Shutdown Completes?

Dec 7, 2010

I've been googling my brains out looking for a solution to this. So far, nothing.

As the title suggests, every time I attempt to shut the computer down it instantly reboots the moment the internal fans stop whirring.

So far I've tried:

-shutting down via the terminal (this actually makes the reboot happen instantly rather than waiting for the fans to stop)

-looking in the BIOS for any obvious settings which may be causing this

-performing a dpkg repair

-Allowing "Proposed" updates in the Updater

-installing (slightly) older Kernel (2.6.35-22 as opposed to 2.6.35-23)

-installing newer (2.6.36) kernel

I know others are having this issue, but other threads I've read seem to have fizzled out with no conclusion. Has anyone managed to find a way to make this work if they've had the bug?

Any advice at all? Is it worth trying an even older kernel? Or an even older version of Linux?

Ubuntu :: Computer Won't Start After Shutdown?

Sep 29, 2010

Sometimes when I shutdown Ubuntu 10.10 and try to turn on the desktop PC it fails. I then have to disconnect tower from the power source and plug it in after waiting a few minutes. This problem first started in Ubuntu 9.10. I have a hunch that it happens because I am shutting down with applications open.

I was told that this is a batter issue on my motherboard, but I've replaced it and still have issues.

Ubuntu :: Lucid (10.04) Wont Shutdown Computer?

May 2, 2010

My ubuntu won't shut down, it stops at the ubuntu logo (with the dots under it). It seems like the OS completely and successfully shuts down, also the harddrive spins down too, except for the computer. I belive this might have happened after I updated my bios. (due to hybrid gpu trouble)I did search on the internet, and found that it might be some ACPI related issues, and that I have to edit the grub's menu.lst file and add acpi=force.However my menu.lst file is blank, there is nothing in there.

I have tried to shutdown via the terminal too, but the same happens there. Last time I checked it successfully reboots, and standby works correctly. For me to shutdown this laptop, I have to remove the battery and the power cord for it to shutdown, or hold the power button for 10 secs, which is really annoing

Ubuntu :: Computer Locks Up On Shutdown Process?

Jun 15, 2010

so i just bought a new Sony Vaio laptop and things are seeming to run great. However, there is one issue: when i go to restart or shutdown the computer, the graphical interface goes away like it should, it goes to CLI and does it's shutdown routine....the problem occurs about 2 seconds into the routine, when it just stops. it doesnt shutdown or restart, but stays in the CLI with a blinking cursor. if i allow it to set for a couple of minutes, a message pops up that says something like this, "BUG: soft lock up CPU0 CPU1 stuck, blah blah". any ideas on what this is or what is causing this? the laptop has the i5 processor in it, just in case that matters

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Upgrade - Shutdown Restarts Computer

Jul 31, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04, and ever since last upgrade a couple of days ago (I think), everytime I hit shutdown on the gnome-panel (admittedly, I haven't tried the command line shutdown) the computer restarts itself. This computer is dual-booted with Win 7, and the shutdown command there properly halts the system.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wake-on-lan With Shutdown Computer?

Dec 11, 2010

This isn't stricly an Ubuntu question, but it is in the cause of an Ubuntu-powered home server Essentially: does wake-on-lan work if the computer is Shut Down (ie to all intents and purposes 'off' except for the hardware switch on the back), assuming that the motherboard and network interface (which in my case are one and the same) support wake-on-lan?

Also, if wake-on-lan is turned on, will this mean power going to anything other than the network interface (e.g. will PSU, CPU, case fans still be on?)Finally, will all of this work on Ubuntu 10.10 (assuming that the computer components are compatible)?

EDIT: Just to be clear, the Ubuntu system will be receiving the wake-on-lan 'call' (from a Squeezebox, though from my very limited knowledge of this stuff I don't think the source matters)

Ubuntu Security :: Computer Shutdown During 11.04 Install?

Apr 29, 2011

My laptop randomly shuts off, at first I thought it was an issue with the laptop overheating but during the install of 11.04 I made sure the laptop had a fan blowing on it constantly and checked it and determined it couldn't have overheated. My problem now is that I was able to use a live cd to access my old files but was presented with only two files stating that my files were encrypted, I'm don't ever recall encrypting my files and so I'm without a passphrase.

What I'm wondering, is there a way to gain access without the passphrase? Or is there a way to fix the corrupt install?

Ubuntu :: Getting Red Shutdown Computer Buttom Back?

Apr 30, 2011

I used to like having that Red Shutdown Button on the top panel in the far right corner next to my name on older Ubuntu versions. It was easy to add with the 'Add to Panel' right-click feature that Unity eliminated. Is there a way to put that Red Shutdown button back on the far right top? IMHO it works better than the present Unity shutdown button.
