shutdown instead of reboot from ctrl-alt-del

Posted 06-14-2012 at 03:30 AM by neonsignal

Typically the ctrl-alt-del in Debian will cause the system to reboot (or the GUI may bring up a dialog).

If the preference is to have this shut down the system instead, the relevant line in /etc/inittab is changed from:
Code:
ca:12345:ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t1 -a -r now
to:
Code:
ca:12345:ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t1 -a -h now
