hiding command prompt

Recommended Posts


Hi, im making a script for my own use to shut down the computer, using the cmd command 'shutdown -s -t 01', now scripting it as follows works fine,

Send('shutdown -S -t 01{ENTER}')

but windows pops up with the command prompt and then a window saying "windows will shut down in less than a minute"

is there a way to hide both the command prompt, and the window itself from showing? i know there is a script line, _RunDOS, but i have yet to figure out how to use it. can anyone help me with it? im not p=sure of the proper useage of the script. thanks
