Resist Shutdown?

9 posts in this topic

Haloo... anyway I can stop the computer from being shutdown? I want to make something for some of the computers in my house so that it asks if you REALLY do want to shut it down.. cause my whole house is networked to one computer with all the printers and such.. and it wouldn't be good if that one shut off -.-'

CMD: shutdown -a

Thats abort. Look for the shutdown.exe process and run that command.

yeap but i think that starts only if

shutdown -s -t (time) -c (comment)

has already started...

if this works then it should be something like

While 1
    If ProcessExists("shutdown.exe") Then
        Run("shutdown -a")
    Else
        Sleep(10)
    EndIf
WEnd

Shutdown.exe does not run on a normal shutdown. Like I mentioned in the post i linked, there was a way I was working with to detect the API call when it was made and hook it (all shutdown.exe does it script a call to that API)... it's been so long since i worked with it a forget what the API call was though...it may have been a not-so-documented api..
