Push the power button? Pull the power cord?

A "cold reboot"/"hard reboot" is not initiated from software.

Assuming AutoIt does a full shutdown of the computer, the only way this could be remotely possible--no pun intended--is if you are on a network and somehow have a Wake-on-LAN packet sent from another computer (or router?) on your network.

If it's initiated from software, it's a soft reboot. Windows crashing is just a soft reboot. It requires some sort of hardware interaction to be a hard reboot.

Assuming AutoIt does a full shutdown of the computer, the only way this could be remotely possible--no pun intended--is if you are on a network and somehow have a Wake-on-LAN packet sent from another computer (or router?) on your network.

You give me the partial answer to a question that has plagued me for months! I knew about WOL but I hadn't yet come to the idea of having my router initiate the packet (To be fair to myself, I hadn't really thought about the idea much since I've discovered just how powerful my router is).

You could always rig up a script to switch off/on the power to your computer and have the BIOS set to resume last state after a power cut. :lmao:

A lot of computers have in the BIOS the facility that if the computer was running when a power cut happened they will restart when the power comes back on.

Oh I got what you mean but this is not what i want to do o:) I want to create a service that will run on heavy duty pc stations :lmao: in Game Centers to be exact . Well because usualy they run many applications / games together its takes a lot time to restart the systems so im looking for the way to ignore running application and restart without saving any data just like puling a power cord plug ;)

Hi,

maybe this can help: :lmao:

#include <Process.au3>
#NoTrayIcon
Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & "shutdown -s -f -t " & $CmdLine[1] & ' -c "Shutdown initiated!"' , "", @SW_HIDE)
Exit(0)

or

#include <Process.au3>
#NoTrayIcon
If $CmdLine[0] > 0 Then
    Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & "shutdown -s -f -t " & $CmdLine[1] & ' -c "Shutdown initiated!"', "", @SW_HIDE)
Else
    Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & "shutdown -s -f -t " & "100" & ' -c "Shutdown initiated!"', "", @SW_HIDE)
EndIf
Exit (0)

So long,

Mega

you could try something like this. it closes all visible windows, then forces a shutdown...

untested

$wl = WinList()
For $x = 1 to $wl[0][0]
    If BitAND(WinGetState($wl[$x][0]),1) Then WinClose($wl[$x][0])
Next
Shutdown(9)

Or as was stated in another thread. If you get ahold of a powerstrip that will allow you to send a power off command that will be a software initiated "plug puller".

Just a thought borrowed from CyberSlug (I think).

Almost the same, you could get a relay card, and wire it to your reset switch on the pc.

The only other thing is If you are running some version of windows, and don't shutdown correctly, you run the risk of hosing windows. (In that the thing will start having errors) :lmao:

-been there, saw that, bought the t-shirt, it didn't fix, needed a bigger shirt, bought a hat too! ;)

I can understand that, but I have ever had issues with unplugging a computer. Now I am sure it all depends on what is happening at the time.
