I had the same problem with my Intel NUC, dual boot F20 and Windows 7.
I did some research and the problem seems to be related to the interaction between BIOS and Linux.

Some people solved it updating to the last BIOS version, see for instance this forum:
https://communities.intel.com/thread/47751?start=105&tstart=0.
In my case the latest BIOS (which solved the problem for the Intel NUC) was still a beta and I did not want to run the risk.

I also found this other post related to the same problem with Ubuntu:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/132143/stuck-on-reboot-and-shutdown/135568#135568

They were proposing to add "acpi=noirq" at the end of line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT in the grub file

sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

set

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi=noirq quiet splash"

then

sudo update-grub

For many people this seems to have solved the problem. I read acpi=noirq suffices for standard booting, which simply doesn't use ACPI for irq routing, I was not sure if it could have side effects and I did not try it.

Still from the first Intel forum, I found another solution: they suggested to change BIOS parameters to enable "Deep S4/S5" (deeper sleep) and to disable "Wake on LAN" (WOL allows you to boot your computer using an ethernet cable).

I tried it and that solved my problem. Hope it works for you.

Ciao

I have the same problem: my computer is a Intel NUC, bios updated to latest version, dual boot Windows 7 and Fedora 20 (with gnome 3.12). I noticed that if I logoff from my user and then I push the shutdown button, most of the time the computer does shutdown.... but not all the times. I also tried to send the command "shutdown now" from terminal, but even in that case, sometimes, the computer reboot instead of shutting down.

Hi NikTh, thank you, you did answer my question. This is the output of the first 2 commands:

$ lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 vga
<...>Kernel driver in use: i915
$ rpm -qa xorg-x11-drv-intel
xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.99.907-2.7.x86_64

The only open question I have is:
you wrote that what I did is useless because drivers are included in the kernel, is this because Intel drivers are open source? Could it be that the repo I have added allows me to get a more updated version? Note that rpm returned version 2.99 while you wrote 2.21 is the most recent in F20. Thank you again! Nicola

2014-04-27 13:27:36 -0600 asked a question Intel Graphic Driver Installation on Fedora 20

Hi Everyone, very new to linux and Fedora... I have a Intel NUC computer, with intel hd 5000 integrated graphic, Fedora 20 and Gnome 3.12 (from COPR)

I tried to install intel open source driver following instructions found here: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/37594/install-intel-graphics-driver-in-fedora-20/

I wasn't able to install the graphic installer, I then added intellinuxgraphics.repo and run "yum distro-sync" as suggested in the post and I got this output

yum distro-sync

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I then tried with this command:

dnf distro-sync

that seemed to work as it wrotes "Completed!".

Don't have a clue if driver was correctly installed, if those "downgrade" are a bad thing or not.

My main question is: how can I check if the intel graphic driver has been installed correctly and it's being used?

I surfed the internet, someone was suggesting to check /var/log/Xorg.0.log but that file is not present on my system. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks Nicola
