Shutdown


I am using Fluxbox window manager and Rox-filer. Is there any script or way that I can simplify shutdown? I can initiate in two ways now. That is type in [CODE]shutdown now -h[, or just press the power button briefly. The only thing about pressing the power button is I not sure if that is a proper way to shutdown. The other way is a bit going to root then using the shutdown now -h command. Thanks in advance for any help. Michael

You can do either without issue. As far as script all there would be is the command you type in the first place.

you could make an alias, something like alias halt="shutdown now-h"
it would make "halt" the same command. add this to /etc/bash.rc or, on some machines /etc/bash.bashrc

or, maybe the most effective way.
press "ctrl+alt+f1" to go to a console window, and press "ctrl+alt+delete"
but i think this does a reboot, not halt
