newest firmware is available for your laptop. A BIOS update can help too https://www.asus.com/me-en/Laptops/K50IE/HelpDesk_BIOS/

thank you @alium for you rapid response. I"ll try to do a BIOS update, that may take some time for reading docs  (i'm not used to that kind of stuff, no easy way to do it on linux unfortunately)
what did you mean "newest firmware is avilable"  ?

your log say, you have BIOS version 207, newest avaible version for your laptop -as i can see in this link - is Version 218.
You can update it in BIOS directly, or under Windows... with update under linux i am not sure, if it is posssible.

I want to collect the messages showing on tty during shutdown because I see some error there. Is there any method to do so? I search in /var/log/* but did not see those messages.
