The manpage of shutdown mentions that shutdown -p invokes halt after 
completion. According to what I see in the code, it actually invokes poweroff 
rather than halt, which means shutdown -p halts the machine via ACPI if 
available and otherwise acts like shutdown -h, while shutdown -h - which calls 
halt - doesn't attempt to power off the machine.
