Instead of typing a key on the keyboard when you see that message, if you wish to shut down, power off via the power button. If you want to power off without having to use the power button, do as Dany suggests below and use 'shutdown -p now.'

Regarding rebooting into Windows rather than FreeBSD, please do as Greg asks and provide more information.

It's almost impossible to guess what your problem is. Obviously shutdown works. Did you install the boot selector? Please:

1.  Shut down the machine (with shutdown, not halt).
2.  When you see "Press any key to reboot", turn the power off.
3.  Turn the power on.
4.  Describe *exactly* what happens.

to turn the power off automatically, you should use : shutdown -p now instead of the -h which gives you this message.
