    At the command line you have issued the command:
    Code:
    shutdown -10
    which will shutdown the computer in 10 seconds. A moment later you realize you do not want to shutdown the computer right now. How do you quickly halt the shutdown command? Choose only one answer:

    1. shutdown -a
    2. shutdown -c
    3. shutdown -H
    4. shutdown -s
    5. shutdown -x
    6. shutdown -ZZ

    Answer later.

    I'll say 2 again too.

    I'll also say that you can cancel a timed shutdown from a bash prompt in Debian by CTRL - c too. Also the time in Debian isn't in seconds, it's in minutes. shutdown -r 10 will reboot the system in 10 minutes, not 10 seconds.

    LOL. No problem. I didn't realize the error until I played with it, as I have no need to do timed shutdowns in my lab. That's pretty much a production enviroment option. Unless, that is, you just want to mess with someone who's going to use your computer. :twisted:

    I appreciate you catching me in these little errors. Part of the reason I do this is to help myself learn. As much as I am chagrined when I make a mistake, it's better to learn from it than to avoid it. Thanks, again.
