I've started to notice that my GNU/Linux Debian is taking so long to turn off. Is there anyway to make it faster? Thanks so much.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It all depends on the number of tasks it needs to shut down. It may also
have to wait for any application updates or downloads to complete as
well.It should not be a big deal. How much longer are we talking about a
few minutes or a lot longer ?

    You did not mention what applications are installed there. Are all applications properly closed before shut down the computer. On debian logs generally are kept in directory called /var/log. Check the one and try to understand what happens when shutting down/booting the machine. For more info, please link here: https://debian-administration.org/article/89/Shutting_down_your_Debian_machine_cleanly

    And one more is here, https://wiki.debian.org/BootProcessSpeedup

    We can't tell what causes a slowdown over the Internet unless you open your system up and let us log in remotely (NOT recommended!)

    Obvious steps would be to do cleanup of system areas, free up disk space, add and/or check RAM, upgrade Debian, review apps that you run for performance issues. Various other possibilities.
