Is there a way to hide the terminal/console on shutting down the Pi? I've got a python script running that calls Shutdown as a subprocess:

# shutdown
subprocess.call("shutdown -h now", shell=True,
stdout=subprocess.PIPE, stderr=subprocess.PIPE)

However the shutdown process seems to send the command to the console so it's viewable just before it shuts down can i just add something like /dev/tty1 or /dev/null


One solution would be to disable the video output with tvservice -o or vcgencmd display_power 0 just before you run shutdown.
