Hi folks,

Another question I wasn't able to answer proper to my self. I recognized
that the system is not turning of by default after typing halt, but
waiting in some kind of standby for reboot. Is this wished behavior or
maybe related to some local config/hardware?


Hi Frank,

halt does not power off the system.
halt -p does.
See man halt
