End of Windows session

Recommended Posts

Can AutoIT detect the end of a Windows session?

I have to do an action just before user shutdown/logoff.

I look at process but when user does "Start" -> "turn off computer" (or something like that, I don't know the english version) no processes seem close or open and I don't know what to see.

What to do:

Open Au3Spy

Click Start - Turn off Computer

Click on a part of the window that comes up to make sure that window is in focus

Type "CTRL+ALT+F"

Press cancel

Look at the output from au3spy


Who else would I be?

I have this in main loop of AutoIt prog:

If WinExists("Shut Down Windows") Then
      $ScRdrIsWanted = $FALSE ;for my needs only in this example
      ExitLoop
    EndIf

Is this best way to detect Windows shutdown?

If I am too verbose, just say so. You don't need to run on and on.

Why not use OnAutoItExit? Requires beta IIRC.

I could do with this function when someone logs off or shuts down (Win XP). Having tried OnAutoItExit this doesn't seen to work in these situations - any other ideas?
