Just put another drive in my son's Dapper machine, it was already installed with dapper from a machine at work, ran dpkg-reconfigure to see the video card, all runs well except it wont shut down! it just stops saying "will now halt" but screen & cpu still powered up. It was fine on the pc at work, any ideas guys?
