How to poweroff directly?


Is there a direct way to poweroff or reboot without the extra step of exiting JWM and then type exit?

Thank you.

By default, the /etc/acpi/button.cfg file looks as follows:
# Default action when PowerOff Button is pressed:
This is safe (acpi daemon+init+shutdown script should cleanly power off your machine).
