    Kali persistence freezes after shut down

    I decided to install Kali 2018.2 on my 16gb SanDisk cruzer with persistence. But ever since I installed it, I cannot switch off my system safely, I end up force switching off my laptop which I do not like at all. As soon as I click switch off or reboot, kali hangs and I cannot even use my trackpad. I have tried disabling intel sounds as that was a solution in one of the 2015 forums, present here https://forums.kali.org/showthread.php?26434-Kali-2-0-Will-Not-Shut-Down-or-Restart

    I also tried to run parrot os on the same stick and ended up having the same issue, but when I run tails this does not happen. Are all Debian systems prone to this issue?

    I own a HP Omen laptop with intel i5 and NVIDIA 1050.

    Please help.

    Does this behavior happen when using your Kali stick on other machines?

    I am sorry but I do not have other machines to try this out. But I noticed more issues, I was installing nvidia cuda, and it started to prepare nvidia-legacy-check, after which i got this message:

    Code:
    Extracting templates from packages: 100%
    Preconfiguring packages ...
    (Reading database ... 361240 files and directories currently installed.)
    Removing primus (0~20150328-6) ...

    Checking for legacy NVIDIA GPUs appears to hang, try rebooting with 'acpi=off'
    added to the kernel boot options in the GRUB configuration.
    Then it has frozen there, I am able to use my system and the terminal, but it does not progress forward

    Hmm...I'd try downloading the image again (verify the hash, of course), then burn it to another USB stick. That will rule out any USB problems and incomplete/corrupted image.

    Did you try interrupting the boot and setting acpi=off?

    Haven't messed with grub in a while, so I'm rusty. Best place I can direct you is the kali.training website. You may need to make a custom ISO to resolve the problem.

    I have the same issue, when I install ParrotOS on my laptop, as a dualboot, when I try to shutdown, restart or even suspend, the whole systems get's frozen. And again, had the same issue installing NVIDIA drivers, the exact same error. Anything should I try?

    I have an HP omen laptop with the intel and 1050 hybrid, same issue.

    The fix is to disable the nouveau driver:

    Code:
    sudo bash -c "echo blacklist nouveau > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf"
    sudo bash -c "echo options nouveau modeset=0 >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf"
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    Edit: you can also disable it through your grub with nouveau.modeset=0
    Code:
    https://askubuntu.com/questions/747314/is-nomodeset-still-required
    (I have not personally tested this btw)

    Note: I have managed to get optimus working with the 390 drivers too but am doing a few tests with the 396 drivers before I post a guide on how to do this.
    (DO NOT SETUP xorg through the nvidia installer, it breaks with the hybrid multi adapter setup)
