Is there a way to issue a shutdown command that doesn't require me to press a key to reboot?
Currently when I enter the command 'shutdown -p' the system shuts down gracefully but I have to press a key to reboot the system.
Ultimately I'd like to be able to power-off the system gracefully without requiring the user (me) to press a key afterwards.
Check if you have the acpi kernel module loaded. Without it, the "shutdown -p" can't shutoff the computer without human intervention. At least in no way I know.
