What can I do with this system value?
You can specify the maximum amount of time (in seconds) to wait for the system to power down normally after a user has requested an immediate power-down, or after a user has requested a controlled power-down and the time specified on the delay parameter has expired. This time limit value is ignored when a user requests a power-down after a power failure has occurred on a system with an uninterruptible power supply.
If the value is set to 0 (or a very small value), a time-out condition occurs, and the system does not finish the power-down operation even though the system processing has ended.
In addition, this value should be set to a value greater than the Maximum time for immediate end (QENDJOBLMT) system value. (To change the Maximum time for immediate end system value, expand Cleanup.), and then select
