The "shutdown -h now" command still does not solve the problem. The system shutdown for a few seconds and then restarts by itself.The 'halt' command does stop the cpu and the screen goes black however the system is still On and i can see the cursor on the top-left of the screen.Thank you for your replyWith Regards,DwijeshOn Mon, Mar 30, 2015 at 11:12 PM, Michael <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:Gajadur,
There is /etc/default/halt (or so, i'm no more using Debian), you can try to switch to the alternative. Maybe it works...
If not, try to find out which command (as root or via sudo, from a terminal) does shut down the machine. For example, "shutdown -h now" should never do a reboot. If that command works, put it into a xfce4 panel button and use that instead of 'logout'. Or just hack the logout button.
