Tails fails to completely shutdown or restart
---------------------------------------------
When stopping Tails on some hardware, the memory wipe procedure fails to
complete: the display gets scrambled, but the computer doesn't
completely shutdown or restart. Sometimes the caps-lock button light of
the keyboard flashes.
<div class="caution">
When this happen, there is no guarantee that the memory is wiped entirely.
</div>
This issue has been reported on the following hardware:
- Hewlett-Packard HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC
- Lenovo ThinkPad X61, only on emergency shutdown when pulling out the
USB stick
- Toshiba Satellite C855D
