Hello Puppy Linux users, I was wondering if there was a way to shutdown my computer remotely over an ssh connection (I have sshd properly installed and can "su" to root).

If the Puppy machine is running X, try the command wmpoweroff
If the Puppy machine is not running X, try the command poweroff

I'm not 100% certain those will work - they may get goofed up when your SSH connection terminates. I don't remember. If they do get goofed up, try adding a & to the end, like this:
wmpoweroff &
That will background the process.

If that doesn't work, try also using nohup to disconnect the command from your terminal:
nohup wmpoweroff &

That one should work period. But it's probably overkill.
