Includes select lines from dmesg (at top) and cron at the bottom.

Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): systemd is Version 229

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create cron job to shutdown with time field.  here is what I used
00 22 * * * /usr/sbin/shutdown -P +2
2.Wait for the cron job to execute

Actual results:Immediately (at 22:00) drops back to login screen instead of shutting down

Expected results:System issues warning message and then after 2 minutes powers off the system.

Additional info: This started happening with recent upgrade to F24.  I also found a reference to this for Ubuntu but not Fedora (  The results look identical to this referenced bug.
