Ubuntu 10.10 server don't shutdown using signal

Hi,

I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 server as guest on a mac with 4.0.4 VB.

When I try to shutdown the machine using the "Send the shutdown signal" nothing, absolutely nothing happens.

To shutdown it I have to explicitly type a shutdown command, and even this way the window don't get closed. I have to close it using "Power off the machine".

Is this a limitation of ubuntu server or is a issue related to VB?

thanks

Cristiano

AFAIK Ubuntu servers don't recognize the ACPI shutdown signal by default.
Add acpi-support to the guest and it should work

Hi again...

You were right, there is no default support to acpi on Ubuntu server.
I've installed acpi support and is working now:
sudo apt-get install acpid



Thanks for your help

cheers
