Ubuntu – Gui shutdown on acer aspire v5-573G not working


When I press the gui shutdown button, the system is not powering off, but rather just remains at splash screen. Hence, I always have to power off the machine manually holding the power button. Issuing shutdown -h or shutdown -P from command line works fine while shutdown -H causes the same problem as the gui shutdown.

I use ubuntu 13.10 (uefi version) on an Acer Aspire V5-573G.
Adding the line "INIT_HALT = POWEROFF" to /etc/default/halt as suggested here does not help.

Any suggestions are very welcome!

It is a bug. Fixed in latest kernel 3.13-rc5.
