Hi, and thank you for your question.

It sounds like your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file may not be configured as well as it could be; however, as long as the computer does shut down or restart when you tell it to, I don't think there should be a problem.

Just for curiosity, when it is shutting down and you get a blank screen, try pressing Control+Alt+F1. It may show something going on. It really shouldn't be a problem though.

Can you help with this problem?
