| Try 'shutdown -p now'. I've had problems with deadlocks when using halt -p
| due to processes not dying on time and the kernel getting stuck on their
| resources (or even panicking).

On the laptop's console:

    halt -p => halt (Press any key to reboot)
    shutdown -p now => ditto

I.e. no luck.
