My new laptop runs perfectly and I am very happy with it, except for the following problem.

Whenever I shutdown, the screen freezes at the Lenovo logo screen and fails to shutdown properly. Even after waiting several minutes, nothing happens. So in the end, I always have to hold in the power button for several seconds in order to get the laptop to complete the shutdown process properly.

I placed the following message in the Lenovo Support Forum.

I finally figured out what the problem was, I solved it by executing the following command:

sudo apt install nvidia-driver-535 nvidia-dkms-535

We had a fun and relaxing week exploring the southern region of Italy called Puglia. Forming the heel of the boot, the region is known for its whitewashed hill towns, centuries old farmland and hundreds of kilometers of Mediterranean coastline.
