As a new user on askubuntu, I want to contribute to a thread with valuable information for those who are still struggling
However, I cannot because the thread already has answers (or so it appears). Certainly in my case and many others, those answers haven't dealt with specific cases and in fact there are answers which are off-topic and in danger of derailing the thread completely
For the curious, the thread is https://askubuntu.com/a/126381/1137630
It's a power down issue where the PC fires up immediately after shutdown. In my case, the situation is resolved by disabling an option in the BIOS relating to "Resume from S5 by #PME"
It's not exactly a solution because it obviously prevents resume in instances where this is desirable behaviour, but it's a legitimate workaround for those awaiting a more elegant solution
This is definitely not a problem in Windows (on the same PC) and it certainly has nothing to do with failure to shutdown because of hung services or misbehaving drivers (as the thread is more recently veering towards)
For the even more curious, the mobo is an Asus M5A88-V EVO on kernel 5.40-48, but has been an issue since 4.15
Is there any way I can contribute or may I expect a moderator to intervene on my behalf? Presumably this is a reputation issue?
