Hi Miguel,

Don't know if it is related but maybe you'd like to know that something
similar was discussed on debian-user-french :


(if you can read French as your mail address suggests).

To sum it up for non French speakers : someone said that « halt » should be
replaced by « halt -p » or « systemctl poweroff ».

Another message talking about the impossibility to poweroff from kde
solved the problem by installing systemd-shim.

Hope you'll be able to solve your problem,

Eddy F.
