Shutting Down Your Linux System

To shut down the Linux image, type the following:

sudo shutdown –r now

If you haven't executed a sudo command in the last 15 minutes, you'll be prompted for the root password when you run this command. In fact, you'll be prompted for the notroot password. Remember that this is because the Ubuntu image doesn't have a root password. In any case, the sudo command is the more secure and safe method of executing superuser (i.e., root) commands.
