1.2.�Welcome to FreeBSD!





As you can see, Apple borrows a lot from FreeBSD.  The co-joined operating system is called DarwinOS which is the foundation for the Apple Mac OSX operating system.
Not having dealt with a Mac for years, I'm guessing about your issue.  If your command returns a prompt after it runs and spits out that message, the shutdown command may have been altered.
At the prompt, try a simple 'halt' command.  That should shut the machine down.

 I have found a FreeBSD OS embedded in my Mac which is fully implemented.
I followed the instructions and did the following from your website

in terminal;  shutdown -k +1 "message"

I get the following:

System shutdown time has arrived

but you'll have to do it yourself

 I am not sure what to do at this prompt....what does 'do it yourself
mean', and what do I type to complete the process??

Also in addition to the above question....

does the fact that those commands do actually work mean that I am correct

believing that there is a FreeBSD OS embedded in my system?

Thank You,

Free BSD
