DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     halt is executed by the superuser to shut the machine down	so it is safe
     to	remove power.  halt leaves the machine executing the firmware monitor,

     remotely logged in	to the system, you are prompted	to confirm the

     The -p option requests that the power be turned off after the system is
     shut down.	 Only some systems support this.
