I attempted to take both Rick Stevens' and Tom Horsley's advice as
1. Log off my KDE session using the GUI.
2. Open a console window using CTRL/ALT/F2
3. Log in as root
4. Enter shutdown -h now
Result, exactly the same as before. System appears to halt properly
except for faint light around the start button, but can't be rebooted
without being reset, messages from systemd-fsck in boot.log.
Thanks - jon
