    Shutdown script


    My system will shutdown if I use the -h modifier on the shutdown command.

    However, shutting down from the gui just hangs the system.

    So the Q is where is the script that shuts down the system cos I wanna put the -h in there.

    Ta.

    Reading the man pages it looks like you can create a folder called :
    /etc/shutdown.allow

    Type "man shutdown", and see if that is what you get out of it.
    Good Luck
