Occasionally, perhaps after one or two days since the last reboot, I find that ubuntu (maverick 10.10) will not shutdown. Rather than kill the power, what is the recommended procedure to deal with this? Does the disk icon for a mounted disk (Windows 7) impede shutdown? In a way, this question might be about how to recognize process names when we have no guarantee over the quality of descriptive names. Or not.
My usage typically involves:
Eclipse with the GAE Java plug-ins. Open Office Firefox python bash / gnome Nautilus within Ubuntu Nautilus browsing over to a physical disk that has Windows 7 installed
I was asked what is seen when I try to shutdown. The answer is just the desktop wallpaper with no messages.
