    Shutdown function not working

    Hello
    I recently purchased a new laptop without OS and did a fresh install of Kali, there are a few small bugs that I am working on but there is one major bug. When I am in ordinary user and select shutdown or reboot from the applications menu, my mouse pointer and kicker panel disappear and then nothing happens and I have to use the power key to shut it down.

    Linux kali3 4.18.0-kali2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.18.10-2kali1 (2018-10-09) x86_64 GNU/Linux


    Any suggestions, I have tried putting the line acpi=force into grub with no luck, also sudo shutdown -r and -h do not work

    ## Edit 2 If I boot to recovery mode and then perform shutdown -r or -h from there I get a message like this "Nouveau refused to change power state" ##

    I found the solution add this line to /etc/default/grub
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="nouveau.modeset=0"
    then update-grub

    After a re-install I had the same problem this time my previous solution dd not work, but this did
    acpi=force apm=power_off
    added into /etc/default/grub.

    Modify /etc/modules and add:

    apm power_off=1

    Edit /etc/default/grub and add this after “quiet splash”: acpi=force apm=power_off
