Shutdown/restart/hibernate etc. ability?
« on: November 13, 2006, 10:45 PM »
Hey all was wondering if anyone knew how I could add the Shut Down/Restart/Stand By etc. to the bar so I could dump the taskbar completely...

If not Mouser could this be added in a future release?

Thanks all!

the easiest way would be to install this freeware tool that can do tons of things through the commandline:

then just have launchbar commander invoke the commands you want.

gives me an idea that i should create a default nircmd toolbar with predefined functions and buttons that you could drag and drop onto your own toolbars, etc.

i use a JScript that shows the ShutDown dialog upon clicking on it, just google it & you'll find a lot of examples.
here's one:
Bringing Up the Shutdown Dialog Box

   1. Create a new txt file somewhere on your system, open it and put in this one line:
      (new ActiveXObject("Shell.Application")).ShutdownWindows();
   2. Save and Close the file. Change the extension to js and your got it.
   3. You can make a shortcut to that file to make it easy to shut down your system.
