comment What happens when a PC is turning off?
...but all of the above I would expect to happen in the space of microseconds, but shutdown takes long enough for Microsoft to need to design a screen as shown in the OP. Why?

comment What does it mean when a DNS name starts with xn--?
I did try it in a web browser. I have never seen such a TLD, hence the question.

comment Solaris - get the remote host associated with each TCP connection
@jlliagre OK thanks. I am experiencing a program creating a very large number (around 7000) of IDLE TCP connections with *:* as the host information, which is actually causing a problem because it is blowing the file descriptor limit of the process.

comment Solaris - get the remote host associated with each TCP connection
When I list the open TCP connections using lsof. Instead of seeing something like hostname1:port1->ipaddress:port2 (IDLE), I see *:* (IDLE). Why might a TCP connection have an apparent wildcard hostname and port like that? Specifically when it is IDLE.
