Poweroff command not working
« on: July 08, 2004, 07:44:28 AM »
My poweroff command is not fully working. My UNIX box does not reached the message it is now safe to turn power off, it just hangs up after a certain tome and I have to turn power off. What should I look for to fix this issue?

IF you are a root user and are using /sbin/poweroff then the computer is suppose to shutdown. The thing about "Your computer is safe to shut down now" is windoows system message and NOT Linux.
