I forget the technical reasons why, but I always use the command "poweroff"

[xxx@xxx work]$ which poweroff
[xxx@xxx work]$ file /usr/bin/poweroff
/usr/bin/poweroff: symbolic link to `consolehelper'
[xxx@xxx work]$ which consolehelper
[xxx@xxx work]$ file /usr/bin/consolehelper
/usr/bin/consolehelper: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
