Just a thought, does it shutdown to turn off OK?  Or is it both it
hangs on? i.e. reboot and shutdown.  I have never trusted the 'reboot'
command, better to use the proper command "#> /sbin/shutdown <-r or
-h> now".

..... Some people can tell what time it is by looking at the sun, but
I have never been able to make out the numbers.
Errata: Spelling mistakes are not intentional, except that I don't use
spell checkers.  It's too easy to allow the spell checker to make the
decisions and use words that are out of context for that being written
(i.e. their/there, your/you're, threw/through and even accept/except),
not to mention foreign (I'm Australian) English spelling (i.e.
colour/color, socks/sox, etc).
