    Question No Shutdown

    after X session logout, from the command prompt...

    issuing a "shutdown -h now" produces only a "Backtrack 5" screen, but does not shut the system down. Tested from live USB and Virtualbox

    Try updating your video driver. I have the same/similar problem on my ATI HD 5620 using the native Backtrack drivers but once I get the driver from ATI installed that problem goes away. *Just a suggestion*

    Same issue here except it's when I issue the command "sudo halt " it just hangs on the Backtrack 5 wallpaper and never gets past that point. i'll try the "power off" command and see how that goes, thanks!
