How to power off after shutdown on RPi 3b+?

edited March 10 in OS features

How do I set my RPi 3b+ to power off after shutdown? Presently, when I click shutdown, the RPi shuts down, but immediately reboots. If I unplug the unit at the wrong time, OS corruption occurs. I want the device to completely power down after shutdown.


  • @Pantheon For me power off shuts down the device; no reboot occurring. What version are you using?
    You can also just pull the plug during the reboot. At this point read-only partitions are read, no corruption possible. Besides, I must admit I've been pulling power for years and never encountered any issues.
