Re: Power-off on UltraSPARC 10

Just a small addition:

After typing poweroff in Linux, the system returns to the OpenBoot
prompt ('ok'). However, it seems to be in a different state then it is
when booting: When I type a command, it autocompletes it. Is this a
different mode of the OpenBoot system?
