How to Quit when the OS is unwilling

Postby DavidMcCrossan » Thu Jun 23, 2011 4:10 pm

Red Willow, you are a star indeed!

A 1-page printout of man shutdown and a quick practice led to:

Code:
Code: Select all
# shutdown -P now


led to a quick and total switch off, with full powerdown.

Exactly what I wanted. Note the root permission.

Thank you so much to all who offered help.

Mark this as SOLVED!

Best
