Powering Down Immediately

11 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

(wow, been awhile since i posted in support...)

I dont know if this is possible, but...

i need to be able to shut down the machine immediately. not stop for programs "waiting for a response" or going through Windows' shut down proccess, or stopping to save. just completely power off.

You know, like, how it does it when u hold the power button for 7 seconds or whatever it is.

(i dont care if its an ugly way or an easy way. it will only be used if my computer gets too hot.)

you could run "shutdown /L /T:0 /C" in dos, this will do a forced shutdown.

the L is the local machine, the T:0 means now and C is so that applications are forced to close.

What you want is stupid, though, so it's good that you can't find a way to do it. The reason the OS takes so long to shut down is so that it doesn't damage the file system in the process. Holding the power button to turn off "instantly" is not good for your filesystem. Programmatically invoking the same thing would also be bad for the filesystem.

What I want is for you to read my really long winded rant about how your wrong and what you want is stupid, though, so it's good that you can't find a way to do it.

Long-winded? You call that long-winded? If you're going to make yourself flame-bait at least pick one of my posts where your editing is actually relevant.

Could I suggest you fix the underlying overheating problem, rather than invoke a patch or workaround.

A good vacuum of the insides of your computer case can often work wonders, and will prolong the life of your overworked components.
