shut down with one click
« on: May 16, 2012, 01:43:54 AM »
hello!

I need a tool that will let me shut down my pc with one or two clicks

while this seems very easy at first thought, I am basically searching for a solution that will properly shut down all processes and programs that are possibly unresponsive or they run and their shut down will result in data loss, and all the other possible popups that WinXP or programs display and you have to click them in order to shut down your PC

so, I need to click it and leave the office, being 100% sure that the PC will shut down

also, any solution that speeds up shutting down, is extremely welcomed

thanks!

Just create a shortcut on the Desktop with:

C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /s /f

eg.

2012-05-16_17-49-15.jpg

/s = Shutdown the computer.
/f = Force running applications to close without forewarning users.

If you want it in one click, move it to the Quick Launch area.

There's also some registry settings you can change to speed things up, (WARNING: make a backup, make sure you know what they do AND the consequences of changing them): How To Speed Up Windows Shutdown Process

Die2000 is listed in the pranks section of my website, but it does exactly that when run.
