    1. I have installed vnc-server on RPi2 board & vncViewer on laptop PC.
    2. Now I have been able to run RPi2 via laptop PC.
    3. I want to know what is the correct way to shut down RPi2 board via laptop.
    4. If I directly close vncViewer on laptop, a messsgae is displayed that "connection is graciously disconnected" & screen is gone.
    I don't know that at this point if Pi board is shut or running?
