                <para>The first argument may be a time string (which
                is usually <literal>now</literal>). Optionally, this
                may be followed by a wall message to be sent to all
                logged-in users before going down.</para>

                <para>The time string may either be in the format
                <literal>hh:mm</literal> for hour/minutes specifying
                the time to execute the shutdown at, specified in 24h
                clock format. Alternatively it may be in the syntax
                <literal>+m</literal> referring to the specified
                number of minutes m from now. <literal>now</literal>
                is an alias for <literal>+0</literal>, i.e. for
                triggering an immediate shutdown. If no time argument
75
                is specified, <literal>+1</literal> is

                speciy a time argument, too.</para>

                <para>If the time argument is used, 5 minutes
                before the system goes down the
                <filename>/etc/nologin</filename> file is created to
                ensure that further logins shall not be
                allowed.</para>
