I had a look at source code. The program flow seems to be is as follows: shutdown => (signals) init => reboot() => boot() => shutdown_final => shutdown_halt() => cpu_halt() I did not see which function is called to request a power down. The __asm__ ("hlt") doesn't power down, isn't it? Could you guys help me to identify how shutdown request a power down. Many thanks in advance.
