Description asvqmnmd 2021-11-12 18:13:49 UTC
Whenever I try to shutdown my pc before the pc shuts down completely. My pc gets stuck on a message "Cleaning blocks /dev/sda3 132321/12142124 clean " and it takes 2 minutes for my pc to shutdown completely. I also asked people in the archlinux forums and they are having the same problem too - https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=2002140#p2002140

1. Shutdown ur pc 
2. A message pops up "cleaning blocks 132321/12142124"
3. Takes 2 minutes for ur pc to shutdown


I expected the pc to shutdown normally like a normal linux distro would.

What is sending that message? What tells you that it's KWin? Can you attach a screenshot?

> What is sending that message? 
In arch u have a command called as journalctl which gives u a log when u shutdown your pc and if anything goes wrong, one can always understand what went wrong by looking at the log. As the log says that systemd is not able to kill the kwin which means something is wrong with it. I tried with cinnamon , gnome and mate but I got no problems at all.

Thanks for the info.
Comment 11 Aleix Pol 2021-11-23 23:18:09 UTC
Would you be able to test git master there? f377696bff39e35ae0f7ae6104d8732b3856744e could help address this issue.

Otherwise, could you try enabling systemd boot for Plasma and see if it addresses the problem for you?
Comment 12 asvqmnmd 2021-11-25 08:50:37 UTC
People having the same issue here I think it is a sddm issue or a kwin issue - https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=259577

This is also happening on my newly installed Arch Wayland setup. I have found that pressing ctrl+alt+F1 during a slow shutdown causes the system to immediately continue shutting down normally. Has anyone else tested this behaviour and does it help with debugging?
Comment 14 Peter Shkenev 2022-03-01 18:15:49 UTC
I've experienced this problem on Arch Linux and Kubuntu 21.04 and 21.10. Earlier I had this bug with GNOME, but there was a period of time when Plasma didn't have this issue.
