    This is NOT a duplicate question of that marked above. This question asks specifically how to "SHUTDOWN", not reboot and not anything else. – Sean Lee Jan 1 '16 at 23:28

reboot -p

was mentioned here which works for me on a rooted device. But someone mentioned here (see comments as well) that it's a bit harsh to simply shutdown without notice. So try something like this:

su -c 'am broadcast android.intent.action.ACTION_SHUTDOWN && sleep 5 && reboot -p'
  • No issues known for turning off the device with reboot -p, then? – Sopalajo de Arrierez Sep 19 '15 at 11:12

    Works well here so far :) – acy Sep 19 '15 at 12:04
