Whenever any of the following commands are run on a Toshiba Satellite
2655XDVD, the shutdown process executes correctly, but then the display
blanks and the system hangs. Only way to recover is to remove power and


# reboot
# halt
# shutdown -r now
# shutdown -h now

Thats kind of hard for us to do anything about, at the point it hangs the
control has been handed back from Linux to the firmware, and its up to the
firmware to reboot a box correctly. There are some possible workaround helpers
as Linux lets you pick multiple reboot methods to try and deal with broken

You can do

where X is
	hard - reboot by reset line
	bios - reboot by bios vector

and Y is
	warm - warm boot, (ctrl-alt-del like)
	cold - cold boot (power on like)

So if you boot

LILO: linux reboot=bios,warm

and see if that works you can hopefully find one boot sequence that doesnt trip
the bugs in your laptop. The append="reboot=..." option in /etc/lilo.conf will
let you set it by default by adding


into lilo.conf for the Linux image

Then rerun lilo
