Shutdown Function...

4 posts in this topic

Shutdown(6)  ;Force a reboot

This is all the helpfile gives me, is there a way to just shut down?

Because I was thinking of making a program I could have running in the background, so when I call a function with a hotkey(Shift+Esc or sth) it would automatically shut down my computer, because sometimes I'm on my PC and I have to shut it down quickly for reasons I won't go into.

So basically, how can you just shutdown? Is it something like Shutdown(5) or what?

So mom does not see you looking at porn?

Anyway, re-read the help file. It explains all the shutdown options. If you just want to shut down the computer, use:

Shutdown (1)

This is from the help file:

The shutdown code is a combination of the following values:

0 = Logoff

1 = Shutdown

2 = Reboot

4 = Force

8 = Power down

32= Suspend

64= Hibernate

Add the required values together. To shutdown and power down, for example, the code would be 9 (shutdown + power down = 1 + 8 = 9).

Standby or hibernate are ignored if other codes are set. They are also ignored under Win9x.


A little reading goes a long way. Post count means nothing.

Read his account name... He's going to need a quick shutdown method to use right after he's done hacking the CIA.

Not porn, I'm just not meant to be on after 10 at night, which isn't nearly late enough.

And I used this name becuase one I normally use on forums was taken and I couldn't think of anythink else so got a name from MSN contact :D

I couldn't find that, thanks :P
