halt


DESCRIPTION
       The /etc/default/halt file contains variable settings in POSIX format:

            VAR=VAL

       Only  one assignment is allowed per line.  Comments (starting with '#')
       are also allowed.


OPTIONS
       The following variables can be set.


       HALT   If set to poweroff the system will be powered down after it  has
              been brought down. This is the default.
              If  set to halt the system will only be halted after it has been
              brought down. What exactly this means depends on your hardware.


       NETDOWN
              Setting this to no prevents shutdown from shutting down the net-
              work  intefaces.  This is necessary to use Wake-On-Lan.  Setting
              it to yes causes shutdown to also bring down the network  inter-
              faces  (and  thus  prevent  the  machine  from  being  woken  up
              remotely).


SEE ALSO
       halt(8), shutdown(8).
