POWERD(1M) Maintenance Commands POWERD(1M)


NAME


powerd - power manager daemon

SYNOPSIS


/usr/lib/power/powerd [-n]


DESCRIPTION


The powerd daemon is started by pmconfig(1M) to monitor system activity
and perform an automatic shutdown using the suspend-resume feature. When
the system is suspended, complete current state is saved on the disk
before power is removed. On reboot, the system automatically starts a
resume operation and the system is restored to the same state it was in
immediately prior to suspend.


Immediately prior to system shutdown, the daemon notifies syslogd(1M) of
the shutdown, which broadcasts a notification.

OPTIONS


The following option is supported:

-n
No broadcast mode. The daemon silently shuts down the system
without notifying syslogd(1M).
