Arch Linux Diagnose Shutdown Problems

If your arch installation fails to shutdown correctly its important to find out if the issue is a kernel or systemd issue. To find this out try each of :

$ sudo sync && sudo reboot -f
$ sudo sync && sudo poweroff -f

If any of the two above commands do not work its a kernel and _not systemd issue.

For systemd issues fter boot run :

$ sudo systemctl --state=failed

Then see if any modules failed to load and work through each in turn.

One other potential issue is that your username is not part of the power group. Add user to group with :

$ sudo gpasswd -a <username> power

Then logoff/on to apply the new group and try to shutdown.
