#StackBounty: #boot #suspend #power-management #20.04 #reboot Ubuntu machine goes into sleep after giving reboot command

Bounty: 100

I am running the latest Ubuntu LTS version: 20.04 on my Dell 7050 Micro.

When I enter the command: reboot and press enter, it does the normal reboot sequence, but most of the time the machine doesn’t come back online, unless I press the power button of the Dell again.

The power button light is fading on/off and I have no idea why this is happening. The only difference is that I see the following line on the screen before it goes into sleep mode or something:

"A suspend job running for…".

What is happening here and how can I fix it?

#StackBounty: #group-policy #audit #reboot Auditpol gets reset after rebooting

Bounty: 50

I have created a script that deletes a file and updates some advanced auditing settings using auditpol. However, whenever the computer gets reset, those auditpol changes get reset as well. Is there any way of preventing this? What could cause that to happen? After doing some extensive research, most if not all answers I found went down the path of deleting some audit.csv files in the system path which has some unintended consequences for me. Generally speaking, those deletions completely removed all of the auditpol settings all together. The main post that my search always led back to is here.

All I want is for my auditpol settings to persists. Otherwise, I will have to write a script to automatically apply those settings after every reboot which I certainly don’t want to have to do.

Another common fix to these types of problems I have seen is ensuring the registry setting to force advanced audit settings to override the legacy ones is enabled which it is. I don’t have any problems actually changing the advanced audit policy, just having it actually remain after rebooting

#StackBounty: #18.04 #shutdown #reboot ubuntu 18.04 restarts after shutting down

Bounty: 50

This appears to be a common symptom, for a myriad of underlying causes — but none of the online solutions I tried worked. I have a system76 laptop (galago ultrapro). Since a few days (after an upgrade perhaps?), my machine started to reboot after I poweroff (either graphically or poweroff).

Some notes:

  • I do not have wake up on LAN/WLAN enabled (sudo ethtool wlp3s0 shows me no wake on lan settings)
  • I have tried a number of parameters in /etc/default/grub, such as acpi=force and acpi=noirq. The latter (noirq) seemed to work in that it shut down the machine permanently, but disabled my laptop’s keyboard (but not my mouse, that was a fun hour). So I had to revert.
  • I have tried the other fixes mentioned here, but none of them worked for me.

Can you help me diagnose and fix the problem please?
