[SOLVED]arch under virtualbox, sudo shutdown not working

Friends:

Thank you for your time and attention.

I am running the latest arch 64 bit inside the latest Virtualbox.

The host os is Windows 7 Enterprise edtion (64 bit).

The VM is (as I have said) arch linux.

When I type

sudo shutdown

the messages scroll down and then it says

system halted

but the Virtual box application does not go away.

I have to the Virtualbox menu and click close->power down.

Is there a way to make the Virtualbox window go away upon a

sudo shutdown

Regards,
-Narahari

I have the same setup... I use 'sudo poweroff' though and it works as expected.

Re: [SOLVED]arch under virtualbox, sudo shutdown not working

for /sbin/shutdown, the default should be poweroff

but i dont recommend the use of /sbin/shutdown at all as its just a symlink to systemctl anyway, just use systemctl directly to proper shutdown the system with

$ systemctl poweroff

Thank you.  The

sudo poweroff

works perfectly.
