Pinebook Linux Power-Down Procedure

The Pinebook Linux Power-Down Procedure that has been found to be most effective (although not 100% reliable) is to use the "power button" to pull up the shutdown dialogue !

Testing has shown that if the shutdown command happens in a terminal (or serial console), or if it is selected with the mouse from the System menu or the tool-bar the system  correctly hits the systemd target shutdown;  however, the hardware ARISC PMIC does not power off the system.

On the other hand,  if the user will press the actual "power button"  (upper right hand key on the keyboard)  then after the systemd  target shutdown the hardware will correctly (most of the time) power off the hardware.

... but don't trust it,  check it !!
