11.2 not shutting down completely

I just installed this 11.2 ver and when I tell it to shutdown it takes for ever then just hangs with this just a little bit of that red line left to go, then it just sits there like forever until I get tired of looking at it then force a shutdown by holding my power button down until my laptop shuts off.

what is this thing doing taking so long to shut off? How can I fix that?

The first place I'd look is the ACPI and other power settings in the BIOS of the machine.

If you are shutting down the Oracle Service in Windows then you need to check the shutdown
option that was selected when the service was created. Try either of these commands in dos.
You can either specify the sid name or the service name. Also take a look at the link below to
see the command options.

Code:
ORADIM -EDIT -SID <sid name> -SHUTMODE immediate

or
Code:
ORADIM -EDIT -SRVC <srvc name> -SHUTMODE immediate

No windows on this laptop, Just Linux and a copy of Solaris 11.2 that is sitting dormant right now.

When I installed it. It took completely over the system. the grub they used made user of that. Unknown to me they are just like Windows in the "its only me" way of life when it comes to using there system. (even though one has to jump through hoops to get it to dual boot)


The HDD on this laptop is ext4 format other then what Solaris made its partition.

Right now I am using Linux on here, with Solaris not being used or in any kind of set up to be used. until I find time to mess with that Grub thing and figure out how to boot into Linux too with it. Grub2 makes things harder too in my option as I my knowledge base about these things is still in a learning pattern.

As far as Solaris shutting down it is like a fresh install on a bare system. So what it did to make it put itself into a wait state or what ever it is in because I cannot see a screen telling me what it is really doing just that splash shutdown screen with the red line that hangs when it gets to a point about 10 to 20 % LEFT TO DO.

I did notice it takes for ever to boot up too, Linux is much faster. Even Windows I fear is faster at boot up time and shut down time even than Solaris is.

I'll look in to this when I find time again.

thanks for your help...

I don't know any "polite" way of installing a bootloader, except possibly providing backup boot sectors for the ones mangled.
