Re: "halt" does not power off on Ubuntu Server 12.04
There are some differences i believe, however halt should by default call -p which is to halt and poweroff.
Try halt -p to see if that works ?
Edit: ok so in my 12.04 which was upgraded from 11.10 VM halt works.
I just did a fresh 12.04 VM install and halt did not poweroff, however halt -p does
