Hi all,

same here: Dell XPS M1530, nvidia 180.x driver. When shutting down an ugly "white / black columned" srceen with a flashing cursor appears. The maching does not switch off. When pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del, the message "stopping all md devices appears, before the reboot is done.

Here my /etc/usplash.conf
-----%<-----
xres=800
yres=600
-----%<-----

When reconfiguring usplash solves it:
sudo rm /etc/ussplash.conf
sudo dpkg-reconfigure usplash

Now my new /etc/usplash.conf
-----%<-----
xres=1440
yres=900
-----%<-----

I still have the ugly screen before shutting down, but it shuts down and that is important!

Greetings, Tobias
