I need some suggestions.  My office mate suggests that the best thing to use to shut down is the cmd repeat 10 sync;repeat 10 rehash;repeat 10 sync;shutdown -y.  He says he has had great luck with it.  It seems to make me wait 60 seconds for user to log-off before it will shut down.  This just 'seems' improper and I am a total novice.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

what do

1. repeat
2. rehash
3. sync

do?

I can tell sync from the HP cmd references.  Repeat seems self-explanatory until closer examination.  Does anyone have any specific information?

I think he wants you to sync (several times ) the memory content to the disks and wait enough time before shutting down
