Use the Power Button for Immediate Shutdown
Caution - This task quickly forces the server's main power off. You might corrupt your system
data during an immediate power down, so only use this task to power
down the server after attempting the graceful power down tasks.
- Press and hold the Power button for four seconds to force the main
power off and to enter standby power mode.
When main power is off, the Power/OK LED on the front panel will
begin flashing, indicating that the server is in standby power mode. See About Controls and Connectors.
- Disconnect the power and data cables from the server.
See Disconnect Cables From the Server.
Caution - When you press the Power button to enter standby power mode, power is still
directed to the service processor remote management subsystem and power supply fans. To
completely power off the server, you must disconnect the power cords from the
back of the power supplies.
