Re: How Do I Remotely Shut Down My SSH Server?
You cant do that unless you allow the user to run sudo without a password for a specific command

%sudo ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /sbin/poweroff, /sbin/reboot, /sbin/shutdown
The line makes it so that sudo will not ask for a password when running /sbin/poweroff, /sbin/reboot, or /sbin/shutdown with sudo
