On Xfce, if I choose 'shutdown' from the session menu, it returns to the login manager instead of shutting down immediately. I haven't spotted any error messages related to this problem in dmesg or journalctl output. My configuration is the following: systemd+LightDM+Xfce.

Thank you in advance for any help!

Have you try using a terminal to see if the problem continue?

Open a terminal an type

Code:

sudo shutdown -h now


or

Code:

sudo halt


or

Code:

sudo init 0

Code:
sudo shutdown -h now
and
Code:
sudo systemctl poweroff
both work as expected. Obviously, both don't work without sudo.
