Power off a Solaris system

This command will safely turn off a Solaris system using the init command.

As superuser,

sync; sync; init 5

Using the init command instead of other options causes the system to use the runtime control scripts in /etc/rc0.d to stop system processes nicely and prevent data corruption.
