I've had an ultra5 and ultra10 for years and always used halt, etc.
I never considered using the powerbutton to shutdown. Anyway, I
tried it on my ultra10 running wheezy and it got as far as
"...Stoping disk
Asking all remaining processes to terminate..."
and hung there without shutting off until I cut the power.
When I powered the machine back on, it said that the disk wasn't
cleanly unmounted, did a fsck, and carried on.
This machine has a SCSI controller and drive.
