When opening a command line / bash with WinSCP and typing in "halt" everything works like a charm: the router stops everything within 10-20 seconds and every LED is finally turned off and the router ready for poweroff.

But when I try to achieve the same using Putty, the router always only performs a reboot instead of halting itself. Here's putty's command line I use:

putty -ssh admin@ -pw xxx -m C:\Users\xxx\turnoff.txt

And turnoff.txt simply contains "halt" as a command.

Why does it reboot instead of halting itself?
