Hi, I am looking for a quick shut down command for the new 9.04.

I want to create a new Launcher on my desk top so when I click it it will just shut the system down and ask no questions or present no options.

I was using one in 8.10 but doesn't seem to work in the new 9.04.

Thanks in advance. Bob.

what was the command you were using in 8.10?

sudo poweroff this command should do it

I just got agound to creating the launcher on my desktop and used "sudo poweroff" as the command.

It did not work. Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance. Bob.
