how can I shutdown my machine using assembly language?

Discussion created by joseph on Dec 25, 2007
I have been using lx800 board and I'm looking for a way to shutdown my board using assembly language.
As I known x86 assembly has no standard and it differs at every chip vendor.
Is there anybody who have succeeded in shutdowning the board using assembly?
or it would be appreciated if anybody introduce a assembly language material for this use.
