http://unix.stackexchange.com – Suppose I boot a Linux machine without GUI. When it displays a tty login prompt, can I shutdown the machine with a keyboard sequence? Of course I could type in my username and password and then sudo shutdown -h now; however, is it possible to shut it down before the login using a keyboard shortcut? (HowTos)
