same problem here.
When I run the shutdown now (or shutdown -now don't remember) command the computer tries to shut off. It get's to the BT5 splash screen and there it just stays, until the PC runs dry on juice... Technically it is a shutdown, but not the kind of shutdown I want to perform
same problem here.
shutdown -h now
Runlevel 0 is used to halt the system, runlevel 6 is used to reboot the system, and runlevel 1 is used to put to system into a state where administrative tasks can be performed; this is the default if neither the -h or -r flag is given to shutdown.-h Halt or poweroff after shutdown.

I usually use the "poweroff" command. That works fine for me.
I Use "poweroff"
and it works
Same here.I usually use the "poweroff" command. That works fine for me.
You should try with : shutdown -h 0
is the shutdown command with a halt option and zero time to wait for shutdown ^.^
Hope this information was helpfull
orCode:shutdown -P now
is what I use.. according to shutdown --help the -P flag powers off after shutdown. It implies halting with -h but i usually tack it in there anyway..Code:shutdown -Ph now
here's a handy tip to save time though.. create an alias for it to save yourself the typing each time.. I use the /.bash_aliases file to store many aliases and for shutdown I add a line like so..
alias shutnow='shutdown -Ph now'
then restart your bash terminal and type shutnow (or whatever word or alias you choose) anytime to turn off your system safely..
If you don't have an alias list yet just create an empty file in your home directory by typing the following:
then you can edit it with your favorite text editor and create aliases with the format:Code:touch ~/.bash_aliases
alias youralias='command(s) to execute'
*make sure to put only one alias per line
Sorry if i got off topic a little bit but i thought it might make things quicker and easier for you on each shutdown.. enjoy!
I use "halt"
