cancelling "shutdown" command
 
I just learned that if I enter "sudo shutdown -h -t time [interval]" in a terminal, closing the terminal will not cancel the shutdown. What, then, is the command to cancel the shutdown if I want to?

The shutdown man pages say:

Code:

      -c
          Cancel a pending shutdown. This may be used cancel the effect of an
          invocation of shutdown with a time argument that is not +0 or now.

I suppose "sudo shutdown -c" will do the trick?
