Some time ago I had a problem with a server that would not power down
automatically so I added the following lines to /etc/init.d/halt to
make it beep continually when it had shut down fully:
while test true
echo -e "\a"
This should come after the 'halt' statement and before the ': exit 0'.
However, if your computer automatically powers down I do not think it
will ever reach the 'echo -e "\a"', which causes the beep.
Hope that helps,
