How it's *supposed* to work is this...
If the machine hangs for 60 seconds, this will cause it to reboot. The
device is supposed to be deactivated when heartbeat exits (and closes
And, in my tests, this is exactly how it works. I have never seen it
shut the machine down in error.
However, I haven't used it in a few releases ;-) I just reread the
shutdown code, and if it takes 60 seconds to shut down your resources
(long-running resources stop scripts), then this could happen.
However, if you're saying that 60 seconds after it said it was
completely shut down, that this happened, then I don't understand that.
