Description From 2002-12-14 12:11:15
Currently, there are options that make shutdwon reboot or halt the system at
the end: shutdown -r and shutdown -h.

But there is no way to turn the power off at the end like poweroff would do.
One mor option would be nice.

This feature would be useful to do something like

shutdown -h +10 (and turn the power off at the end).

What about adding \"-p\" option?

Does it work already? It is not described in the man-page.

I agree if a new option that does it was named \'-p\'.

Starting with SysVinit-2.85, "shutdown -h" tries to do poweroff. 
I'm agree with upstream.
