Use 12 hr format with shutdown?


#1

Can shutdown be used with a 12 hr format?

Like shutdown 12:23 a.m


#2

No.

The time string may either be in the format "hh:mm" for hour/minutes
specifying the time to execute the shutdown at, specified in 24h clock
format. Alternatively it may be in the syntax "+m" referring to the
specified number of minutes m from now.  "now" is an alias for "+0",
i.e. for triggering an immediate shutdown. If no time argument is
specified, "+1" is implied.
