    if you're logged in to a console (vt (short for 'virtual terminal')), do this:
    Code:
    shutdown -r now  <--that reboots
    shutdown -h now  <--that halts the system
    read the shutdown (1) manpage for more info on what can be done with the shutdown command (like scheduled downtime, etc)
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr

    You have to be a member of the shutdown group in order to use shutdown in MDK. The default doesn't automatically make users part of this group, you have to add it manually (start > system > configuration > configure my computer > system > users & groups).

    You can also use the halt command, but that's a little less sophisticated.
