Hi everyone, I'm trying to run this code on the command window in order to shutdown the computer from MATLAB (I have a very long set of simulations and I would like to switch off my pc at the end):
system('shutdown -s')
The answer is:
shutdown: NOT super-user
Do you know how I can execute it? Or how to obtain the super-user privileges? (I have already tried to switch on the root privileges on iOS but the result was the same).
Thanks a lot, Antonio

You can try starting MATLAB with superuser privileges:
sudo ./matlab
and/or run the command with superuser privileges:
system('sudo shutdown -s')
You can refer to the following page for more information on the 'sudo' command.
