I doubt the RPC program not registered message is related to your no power off issue.

If you have changed something in the OS, like installing a new driver or something, the shutting down phase might be longer than expected. You just need to be patient. If it really doesn't stop after too much time (perhaps 10 minutes or more), try the power off button (just a short press if a soft power off switch).

"init 5" is the proper way to shutdown Solaris.
What you observe with "init 0" and "shutdown -i0 -g0 -y" is the expected behavior.

Code:
init 5
Quote:
rpcbind: rpcbind terminating on signal.
svc.startd: The system is down
syncing file systems... done
Press any key ro reboot
no power off. "Press any key ro reboot"

This problem related to RPC?

Not at all. This is more likely a problem with Solaris interfacing with your hardware. Make sure your BIOS is up to date and nothing prevents turning it of programatically in its settings.

PS: please try to care the way you write in English. It is sometimes hard to get what you mean.

Again, this error message and the no poweroff issue are unrelated.

You can investigate further by going in single user mode with "init s", enter root password for system maintenance when prompted and finally run the poweroff command. If it doesn't turn the machine off, there is something wrong/unsupported with your BIOS.

That depends on the manufacturer. Yours obviously requires Windows.
