Sometimes when I use shutdown -h now, my system reboots rather than stays
shutdown. What causes this to happen?

@Edward Tari, GNU/Linux is the FULL operating system/kernel set (for
simplicity, let's just say it's the full operating system), while Linux
Mint is a linux distro - or Linux flavor if you wish. Linux Mint is based
in Ubuntu (another Linux distro) which in turn is based in Debian (yet
another distro). Linux Mint is a good choice to start for a newbie,
specially if they're coming from Windows.

@papabaks, make sure you are logged in as the root user before you issue
the 'shutdown -h now' (without quotes, of course ;)) command. There are
certain commands in GNU/Linux that can only be executed as the root user -
and shutdown is one of them.

In an redhat5, once shutdown the system with as root:
shutdown -h now
now, when I restart the system and connected as root then I have lost all
display tabs, i.e.: "Applications", "Places" and "System", so basically I
cannot use any display commands anymore through root user. On the contrary,
if I swift on another user, for example oracle, then I can see and work
fine all display commands. How can I fix this behavior and work fine again
with root user as?

If you want to shut down and then turn off the power, you can type
shutdown -P now
this shuts down the pc normally and after it turns off the power as well
