    Default Reboot doesn't work

    Hi guys ,

    i have a problem with my Backtrack5 R1. Everything works fine except that i cannot reboot. If i type 'reboot' in the shell the reboot is starting, X is closing but all the power-LED from my Netbook keep on, and the screen is just black and nothing happens.
    I have to press the power button to hard-shutdown the machine and start it again. What yould I do to fix this problem?

    Thanks

    Default Re: Reboot doesn't work

    If you logout out of the GUI, and run reboot from the command line, it should reboot fine.
    If I could figure out how to scuba dive & hack at the same time, there would be nothing I couldn't do...

    Default Riferimento: Reboot doesn't work

    if the reboot won't work, it's better to run
    poweroff
    to switch off the computer instead of using the hardware button.
    Btw what "scottm99" said should work properly.
