Default Shutdown/power off the machine?

After a successful installation and typing reboot at the command prompt, I was taken to a login screen that states:

Welcome to example.my.domain

After typing in the word root and the password, the next screen shows an xterm and nothing else.

At this stage, I wish to shutdown/power off the machine.

I issued the command: sudo shutdown -h now
and an error message appeared.

How do I shutdown the machine?
