telinit question

Hi to all.

The Texinfo and man pages of telinit, mention both in Ubuntu 11.04 and
Scientific Linux 6:

"Normally  you would use the shutdown(8) tool to halt or reboot the
system, or to bring it down to single-user mode".

However I couldn't find any option in shutdown command, that brings
the system in runlevel 1 (single user mode). Am I missing something?

Thank you,
