  • I think this command just only restart the computer. What I mean is to log off completely and start restart function?

  • What exactly do you want to accomplish? A restart logs off the user first.

  • The command shutdown -l will log off the user, but only when run in the users context. That means you cannot use it as an admin to log off another user.
