Create One-click Shutdown And Reboot Shortcuts

Post by Nazzgull on Wed Aug 06, 2008 12:26 pm

This is my tutorial Big Grin

First, create a shortcut on your desktop by right-clicking on the desktop, choosing New, and then choosing Shortcut.
The Create Shortcut Wizard appears.

shutdown -r -t 01 -c "Rebooting your PC"
Double-clicking on that shortcut will reboot your PC after a one-second delay and display the message "Rebooting your PC." The shutdown command includes a variety of switches you can use to customize it. Table 1-3 lists all of them and describes their use.

More:

shutdown -s -t 03 -c "Bye Bye m8!" - Shutdown your PC in 3 sec
shutdown -r -t 03 -c "Ill be back m8 ;)!" -Restart your PC in 3 sec

-s
Shuts down the PC.

-l
Logs off the current user.

-t nn
Indicates the duration of delay, in seconds, before performing the action.If you want action in 10 sec , type -t 10

-c "messagetext"
Displays a message in the System Shutdown window. A maximum of 127 characters can be used. The message must be enclosed in quotation marks.

-f
Forces any running applications to shut down.

-r
Reboots the PC.

Have fun ! I just click on Shutdown. 30 sec cya Big Grin

Is there any way to cancel the shutdown before it gets to 0?
