I recently bought the asus tuf gaming a17 laptop and installed zorin. It was a process trying to find the proper uefi boot image for the live usb, then dealing with an under supported Realtek 1811 WiFi/ Bluetooth adapter. After finally getting that corrected, zorin updates and i loose my wifi again, but more troubling is the fact that the laptop will not completely power cycle for restart or shutdown. What i mean is the power stays on, though the os completed shutting down.
I googled this and found Ubuntu 12 and 18 had the same issue. I attempted the grub fixes of acpi=force and the acp=power_off to no avail. Any ideas would be appreciated. I also would like a persistent driver install so that i don’t have to redo my wifi adapter after every update.
Thanks for all your help.
