I thought the OP said they'd used poweroff.

man poweroff
Excerpt:
NAME
       reboot, halt, poweroff - reboot or stop the system

SYNOPSIS
       reboot [OPTION]...

       halt [OPTION]...

       poweroff [OPTION]...

DESCRIPTION
       These programs allow a system administrator to reboot, halt or
poweroff
       the system.

       When called with --force or when in runlevel 0 or 6, this tool 
invokes
       the reboot(2) system call itself and directly reboots the system. 
Oth-
       erwise this simply invokes the shutdown(8) tool  with  the 
appropriate
       arguments.
