Shutdown from Command line

In order to shut down your system from the command line, use the shutdown command in a virtual terminal or terminal emulator:

$ sudo shutdown -h now

The shutdown command must be invoked with a time to shut down. That's what now is. The -h flag tells the system to power off. For more options, see the man page.
