What about shutdown -h ? Does it work as expected? Then try halt and
It's my understanding that poweroff is a backwards-compatibility
implementation of systemctl poweroff, which I have tried to no avail. I
should have mentioned that. It appears that halt is the same. shutdown
if a link to systemctl. Bottom line is that I would not expect any of
these to be any different, but I live in hope and will report back if
there's any difference.
I should also mention that systemctl poweroff works fine on my laptop
running the 32-bit version of Fedora 16.
One point, FWIW. Power off is essential for my application. Merely
halt-ing is no better than just leaving the system running.
Thanks. I don't wish to seem ungrateful -:)
