NAME

       halt - variables that affect the behavior of the shutdown scripts

DESCRIPTION

       The /etc/default/halt file contains variable settings in POSIX format:

            VAR=VAL

       Only  one assignment is allowed per line.  Comments (starting with ’#’)
       are also allowed.

OPTIONS

       The following variables can be set.

       HALT   If set to poweroff the system will be powered down after it  has
              been brought down. This is the default.
              If  set to halt the system will only be halted after it has been
              brought down. What exactly this means depends on your  hardware.

       NETDOWN
              Setting  this  to  no  prevents  shutdown from shutting down the
              network  intefaces.   This  is  necessary  to  use  Wake-On-Lan.
              Setting it to yes causes shutdown to also bring down the network
              interfaces (and thus prevent the machine  from  being  woken  up
              remotely).

SEE ALSO

       halt(8), shutdown(8).
