Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10


SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (SLED10) was installed to a laptop. When powering off the laptop, the OS appears to completely shut down, but the laptop does not power off.


  1. Edit the /boot/grub/menu.1st file.
  2. Locate the line beginning with "title" that uses your default boot system, e.g. "SUSE Linux Desktop 10".
  3. On the indented lines below that, there will be a "kernel" line. Scroll to the end of this line.
  4. Add " noacpi", e.g. the full line in the example resulted :
    kernel /boot.vmlinuz root=/dev/sda5 vga=0x314 resume=/dev/sda2 splash=silent showopts noacpi
  5. Reboot the laptop.
