Hi all!

Just a short newbie question, only out of curiosity:

I know that the shell command to close down the system is "sudo shutdown -h now" .
I was just curious: When I shut down the system via graphical interface (the start menu) which command is executed in the background? The same or another one?

I've been told that if you click shutdown then it executes exactly the command you referenced.
