Linux: Shutdown/Poweroff command

The other day I was surprised to find the ‘shutdown -h now’ command on the Redhat/Centos rescue CD doesn’t work. I’ve since discovered a few other ways to get a Linux OS to power off, each should accomplish the same thing – gracefully power down.

  shutdown -h now
  halt
  poweroff
  init 0
