Long Sparky shutdown on HP Mini 210

Hello.  I have a MinimalGUI install of SparkyLinux 4.4 on an HP Mini 210.  I've been very happy with this installation, but I have one small problem.

When I shutdown (using the Openbox Exit menu entry) and remove the splash screen I see the usual shutdown messages until the very end.  The last message says "reboot: power down" and then the machine idles for about a minute or more before the power goes off.  There is no mention of a "stop job."  This happens for both the normal and the quick shutdown choices in the menu.

This isn't a big deal, but I have another 4.4 Sparky installation on a laptop and it shuts down very quickly.  So I was wondering if there is something wrong with my notebook install or if this can be changed so that shutdowns are quicker.

PS.  I've done a bit of web searching on this issue.  It appears to be hardware or kernel related, so it's not a SparkyLinux issue.  Sorry I was so quick on the trigger to post.

There is small issue about mounting/unmounting swap partition and the shooting down/rebooting takes 1.30 min extra to finish.
Hope will be fixed soon.
