Turning Off Power to System Devices

You can shut down an x86 based system by pressing the power button. An ACPI event is then sent that alerts the system that the user has requested a shutdown. This method of turning the power off is equivalent to issuing a shutdown –i0 or an init 0 command.

For information about turning off power to devices, see the instructions for the specified hardware in the product documentation at https://www.oracle.com/products/oracle-a-z.html.

During the shutdown process, if the console=graphics option was used to boot the system, and the shutdown is triggered by the Xorg server, a progress status indicator is displayed. To bypass the progress status indicator, set the new splash-shutdown property of the svc:/system/boot-config SMF service to false, as follows:

$ svccfg -s svc:/system/boot-config:default setprop config/splash_shutdown = false
$ svcadm refresh svc:/system/boot-config:default
