What is the version of libasound2 in your system?
I've had a similar problem when libasound2 was upgraded to version
1.0.11-6 and was resolved the next day when 188.8.131.52 was released.
During the boot and shutdown phase i could see a lot of error regarding
alsa (which i cannot remember), terminating with a red "failed" message.
Such messages were not logged anywhere.
If this is your problem, doing and upgrade will solve.
