What is the proper way to shut down a Sunblade 150 if logged

I was thinking of using sudo from a shortcut on the desktop.
Could that work?
There must be a standard procedure though.

This is what I do.

/opt/csw/bin/sudo /sbin/init 5

Also, if I recall correctly, on my Blade 100 (when I used it), if you
double click the power button it initiates a powerdown.


setting a correct path would make this command far easier.

ln -s is your friend. Sudo as most admins know it is not
standard equipment after Solaris 9 or so. Some of the
aftermarket sudo's install in /usr/local/bin.
