That's not too unreasonable. I'd take -h to mean halt, and -P as Power Off.

How do we boot up after "halt" or "sleep"? I quit using these commands years ago for lack of knowledge about booting back up. The man pages never gave me what I needed to know, and now that it has been brought up, I thought that I would ask and get my curiosity satisfied.
