See attached screenshot, "Use Control-C to stop this server" should be changed to "Press Control-C twice to stop this server".

The document for this new feature was hidden in release notes of 3.0. It's not noticeable.

Which version are you using ? (there are not 3.0 do you mean 0.13.x ? )

I got :

$ ipython notebook
[NotebookApp] Using existing profile dir: u'/Users/bussonniermatthias/.ipython/profile_default'
[NotebookApp] Serving notebooks from local directory: /Users/bussonniermatthias/ipython/IPython/frontend/html/notebook/static/js
[NotebookApp] The IPython Notebook is running at:
[NotebookApp] Use Control-C to stop this server and shut down all kernels.
^CShutdown Notebook Server (y/[n])? y
[NotebookApp] Shutdown confirmed
[NotebookApp] Shutting down kernels

Seem explicit enough to me, and I don't have to press Ctrl+C twice.

Sorry. Typo. Should be 0.13.1. It was tested on Window 7 64bit.

Here is the doc. http://ipython.org/ipython-doc/rel-0.13/whatsnew/version0.13.html

Search for ctrl-c to find it.

I also use this on Mac OS X, it works fine. I got same response like what you got.

This issue is on my Windows 7 64.

On my windows 7 64 machine I do not have to press ctrl-c twice. But
there is a delay of 5s - 10s before anything happens, even the printing
of the message "Interrupted..."
