i am facing problem on turn off . after press shutdown, it just close the lcd but still power button is on. i have to press and hold on the power button for complete shutdown. please advise. i am really worried due to this issue,
***SOLUTION***This is a hardware problem, not a software problem. I am running the factory Win 7 home x64 and dual booting Ubuntu 12.04 x64, with this exact problem in both OS's.What I did is I took out the keyboard and the palm rest (there should be a tear down guide put out by Dell) and you should see a coin cell battery. I took it out for about 10 seconds and then put it back in. I also checked all the other connections and removed and reseated the HDD. I then went into BIOS and made sure there weren't any funky settings. It now shuts down, suspends, and wakes properly (only tested in Ubuntu 12.04)I have no clue how or why, but that's what did it.
Thanks Adam_SQL, that worked for me. Did not have to reseat the HDD, just removed the battery. Worked perfect after that!
please tell me how to say thanks?
I'm very gratitude about your help.
just disconnect the Bios battery and connect it again after 1 minutes, my laptop power off normally
Welcome to the community
This seems to be a simple issue to be fixed. We have to change few settings on the system for fixing it. Please find the necessary steps below to be followed
1. Go to Start menu and control panel
2. Under control panel please select Power options
3. Under poer options please select choose what power buttons do
4. Select the option which says shutdown.
5. Also select choose what closing the lid do and select shut down
This should fix the issue on the system.
Let us know the progress

Please help me!
I have sent you friend request please accept it, so that we can work on the issue.
I have did almost every thing possible but unable to fix the problem, the issue is same with N5110, that it does not properly shuts down, instead I have to press and hold power button to switch it off. Even I updated the BIOS as well, I don't have IEEE 1394 Bus Controller in Device Manager, only IEEE 1394 Bus Controller I haven't tried because of its unavailability. Please suggest .
