USed terminal to power down for power down but Web ui says still on an cant resize?

Hi all,

I powered down my droplet as follows: sudo shutdown now

Back in the web panel, the droplet UI stated it was still on and I ended up shutting it down via the UI despite the warning. I then resized and back in business. Why didnt the DO app detect the droplet was off (which it was). Is this normal behaviour? Should I have resized within the DO web ui anyway?

Thanks in advance

That’s because you probably already opened your Droplet details page (when you select specific Droplet). At this point it will not refresh power status if you shutdown via Console/SSH. You could that without shutting down via UI. Simple page refresh (or going to All Droplets then your specific Droplet) would refresh power status and do the job.

I never paid attention to it as a bug. Probably it just don’t uses something that will do refresh from time to time.

Maybe we can verify that with support or ask @ryanpq does he know more about it or is able to verify with support. :D
