Thanks for the reply. The name is in the message by the way.
So I take it that some "option" always has to be specified when using the
shutdown -P now
If an option is required it would be nice to at least get an error message
to that effect so I would know I did something stupid. Otherwise it looked
like it worked until I noticed the directly attached console screen.
