 Getting FBSD 4.0 to shut my system off with cron
Author: W. Casama 
Date:   12-06-00 22:52

Hi all,

Here's something I've been trying to figure out for a while and I think that there's something simple I'm missing. (Mind you, I'm a hardcore FBSD newbie)

I'm trying to get FBSD 4.0 to shut down and power off my computer @ a certain time with a cron job. I have tried turning on the APM in my bios then using

# halt -p now

To try to actually accomplish it from the command prompt without luck. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thx
