I take you meant "shutdown -h now"
PS: You can also replace the "now" with "0".

Or if you are using KDE, goto the control center -> KDE components -> Session Manager and check the box next to offer shutdown options. This will enable a option to shutdown when you click logout in the kde menu.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

Thanks for the correction, jens - it's really funny that I did that because while typing out the command, I was trying to pay particular attention that I "didn't" type in the wrong command... :P

Most of the time it is shutdown -h now, but sometimes I will have to use shutdown -p now or halt. halt on some systems will just reboot (like *BSD), the best thing to do is enable acpi in your kernel and then find what way works for you, shutdown -h should more than likely work for you.Registered Linux user #393103
