Ubuntu 16.04 LTS When I go to the gear symbol in the upper right corner of the screen and select Shutdown from the dropdown menu, I would like to change the behavior (not necessarily what is displayed) from shutdown to halt.

Why? because my system has always-on power and when shutdown is executed it shuts down but then immediately reboots. I would prefer to have it halt and then I can remove power and plug it back in if / when I want it to reboot.

  • it appears that tool is only available up to Ubuntu 13.04. I believe that a lot of changes have been made to how Ubuntu is configured since then. – joep Mar 15 '17 at 22:11
