Well still nothing in the logs that even resemble any help for me which is becoming frustrating.
Though with further testing what I thought helped does not appear to have. I was able to shutdown/reboot about 10 times smoothly. Then after that each shutdown or reboot I tried went back to the old behavior of having the red screen.
I am back to having to use shutdown -hF 1 or longer wait to get it to smoothly shutdown or reboot.
Thanks again to those who have offered some insite so far, I will keep trying more things to see if I can track this down, or fingers crossed some miraculous update comes that automagically fixes me ;P
Just an idea change some of the shutdown scripts, explicitly unload the nvidia blob etc and maybe include some kind of "milestone" debug information in the scripts in /etc/rc.*shutdown ... you might just by accident find the culprit and get things right with a while kill -0 loop or sleep.
Thanks for more suggestions, I had nothing other than what is stock in the shutdown files. So i read through more things in relation to shutting down and openbox. I found someone in the arch forums having similar issues so I thought I would try it and it seems to be able to do everything in shutdown/reboot as I would expect. The weird thing is though when it executes it shows an error as not working properly when being called through shutdown/reboot but from normal command line it works as it should. I added
pgrep -P `pidof openbox` | xargs kill -s SIGTERM sleep 5
it throws an error in regards to pgrep, I believe but it goes by so quickly I can not read the whole thing.
So not really sure whats going on but even though it does not work 100% properly it gets passed locking up with a red screen or just with a cursor. If I can sort this out further I will post back the results and mark this solved.
Thanks again for the help I have gotten so far.
