I did not like it and moved back to sysvinit, and suddenly poweroff worked again. But of course, it could be by case. So, my problem was rather that of 'good style'. Without any warning, or asking me for choice, my sophisticated custom init setup altogether with some hardware go screwed up, and that made me angry. I was not used to such a treatment from Debian, in all the years before, to the contrary, the updates used to ask me about every little thing.
Could you please point me (us?) to a good and reasonably short summary
about the known issues in debian related to systemd, and how to switch
back to sysvinit, in case?
My suspicion is that the real issues are related to the new linux
kernels, perfectly functioning hardware suddenly stops working after
kernel updates, forcing people to spend a considerable amount of time in
trying to solve technical problems.
