Would it be a good idea to put Musher's code before it to close any drives open though?

Yes, surely a good idea.

But something to think of:

- auto-unmount all ISO files in /mnt
- auto unmount all SFS and [2,3,4].fs files in /mnt
- Edit: not to forget to make a sync, to make sure cache is written to USB

Because you can not unmount a drive which contains an mounted ISO, SFS or save file. Do a sync first and then make sure to unmount SFS and save files first, because they could have been mounted from within a mounted ISO file.

I'm using/doing this automatically on every shut-down/reboot in my private LazY Puppy System/s.

Thanks for that info RSH.

Good ideas on those extra layers of mount, they confused me a few times in the past.

I know Lazy is a very slick modular system with various SFS available.

I have noticed that if I write something to a usb stick, and right click "unmount", puppy very graciously will not unmount the stick until it has finished the write that is in the cache. So that is handled very nicely.

My needs are simple.
After a big thread about shutdown, I have settled with a fast shutdown on the taskbar, and the "proper procedures" (save file etc) in the menu.

So far, the combination works a treat.

yes I added sort -r to the end of the unmount loop in puppy so loop mounted files get removed first but I mount them to /mnt/filemnt/.....
so no '+' so a different trick might be needed.

Subject description: No save on exit..
 

Have been following instructions, event handler is set to 0. No autosave... however i am having trouble locating the menu.lst file.

I know there is a pet somewhere which has "shutdown no save" option, just can't seem to find it again.

am using macpup 550
