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 net‐
	      work  intefaces.	This is necessary to use Wake-On-Lan.  Setting
	      it to yes causes shutdown to also bring down the network	inter‐
	      faces  (and  thus	 prevent  the  machine	from  being  woken  up
	      remotely).

SEE ALSO
       halt(8), shutdown(8).
