One Click Shutdown N Reboot Shortcuts

Guys,First off all , create a shortcut on your desktop by right-clicking on the desktop , choosing New , and then choosing Shortcut . The Create Shortcut Wizard appears . In the box asking for the location of the shortcut , type shutdown . After you create the shortcut , double-clicking on it will shut down your PC .

But you can do much more with a shutdown shortcut than merely shut down your PC . You can add any combination of several switches to do extra duty , like this :

shutdown -r -t 01 -c "Rebooting your PC"
Double-clicking on that shortcut will reboot your PC after a one-second delay and display the message "Rebooting your PC ." The shutdown command includes a variety of switches you can use to customize it . Table 1-3 lists all of them and describes their use .

I use this technique to create two shutdown shortcuts on my desktop—one for turning off my PC , and one for rebooting . Here are the ones I use :

shutdown -s -t 03 -c "Bye Bye m8 !"
shutdown -r -t 03 -c "Ill be back m8 ; ) !"

What it does

Shuts down the PC .

Logs off the current user .

-t nn
Indicates the duration of delay , in seconds , before performing the action .

-c "messagetext"
Displays a message in the
System Shutdown window . A maximum of 127 characters can be used . The message must be enclosed in quotation marks .

Forces any running applications to shut down .

Reboots the PC .
