✔ Creating a Shutdown/Reboot/LogOff Icon

2 Comments »
Windows XP has a program called SHUTDOWN.EXE which allows you to easily create icons to shutdown or restart your computer.
 
To create a shutdown shortcut on the desktop:


1. Right click on an open area of the desktop
2. Select New -> Shortcut
3. Enter in "shutdown -s -t 00" (without quotes)
[ 00- indicate the time (sec.),, e.g. 05- will shutdown PC after 5 sec.]
4. Press the Next button
5. For the name, enter in anything you like. I just use shutdown. Click on the Finish button.


To create a Restart shortcut on the desktop:
follow the above same procedure just little-bit change is,
For a reboot/restart icon, enter "shutdown -r -t 00" (without quotes)


To create a LogOff shortcut on the desktop:
follow the above same procedure just little-bit change is, 
For a reboot/restart icon, enter "shutdown -l -t 00" (without quotes)


Syntax is :-

"Shutdown [{-l/-s/-r/-a}] [-f] [-m[\\ComputerName]] [-t xx] [-c "message"] [-d[u][p]:xx:yy]" 
(without quotes/brackets)

Parameters:-
-l - Logs off the current user, this is also the defualt. -m ComputerName takes precedence.
-s - Shuts down the local computer.
-r - Reboots after shutdown.
-a - Aborts shutdown. Ignores other parameters, except -l and ComputerName. You can only use -a during the time-out period.
-f - Forces running applications to close.
-m [\\ComputerName] - Specifies the computer that you want to shut down.
-t xx - Sets the timer for system shutdown in xx seconds. The default is 20 seconds.
-c "message" - Specifies a message to be displayed in the Message area of the System Shutdown window. You can use a maximum of 127 characters. Here, You must enclose the message in quotation
marks (It's mandatory).

(e.g. shutdown -s -t 60 -c "bye, windows is shutting down in one minute" )
Thats it!
Use this icon to easily shut down/reboot your windows with a click of a button..

-d [u][p]:xx:yy The reason code for the shutdown
u is the user code
p is a planned shutdown code
xx is the major reason code (positive integer less than 256)
yy is the minor reason code (positive integer less than 65536)
