    You would think this would be easy, but apparently not.

    What would I type in terminal (SSH) to turn off the ipod completely. Not reboot, but actually turn it off.

    Best I can find is reboot. Searching didn't help, neither did google.

    shutdown is the OS X command to turn it off.

    poweroff works on Linux.

    o.o Don't post stupid sh*t.

    When in that post did I say anything about deleting?

    Also, that wouldn't brick your ipod. You can just restore in DFU mode.
    Tried both already. Didn't work.

    What? There is a Yes and a No. When you run the command, what does it say?
