Which Shutdown for a killer shutdown?

Recommended Posts

leuce

G'day everyone

I'm a little unsure about which Shutdown code to use. I want something that will be the equivalent of yanking out the power cable (or, in a laptop, yanking out the power cable and ripping out the battery). Am I right that 28 should do the trick?

I wouldn't mind a shutdown that is less severe on the system, but it is important that the shutdown does take place and is not held up by some program that is not responding.

Will 29 be easier on my system? I mean, does AutoIt first try the less severe option, or does it go for the most severe option immediately?

Thanks

Samuel

Hi, leuce. In the time it took you to write all that out, you could have tried out the various options and decided for yourself which one works best for you :)

28 might help you, I have used 12 all the time and had no problems with my netbook. It will definitly shut down your computer regardless of what is running

AutoIt does neither. It passes the flags to ExitWindowsEx (except if you use standby or hibernate, that's somewhere else).

Shutdown seems to be a popular function these days! I've seen at least 2 or 3 questions asking about the parameters and what they mean etc.

I actually considered that, but I didn't want to break the computer on an experiment.

Sometime ago I made a task manager script (for the heck of it) that had implemented a sort of cold boot option, got board of it and moved on.

The code for cold booting is somewhere in there...
