Scheduled shutdown in XP….cool

::::::: Scheduled Shutdown in WinXP :::::::

In dos prompt type this line,shutdown for help.Yes really worthfull command from MS 

Example :

C:\Docmen~\Mahe>shutdown.exe -s -f -t 60 -c "Windows is shutting down shortly in 60 seconds" press enter, you will get a small dialog box appears on screen alearting for shutdown with above said text messages.

Here is the actual parameter definition,

shutdown.exe -s -f -t 60 -c "Text"
-s(for shutdown) -f (force shutdown) -t xx(time xx(seconds)) -c (comments)

For more details, type shutdown for help
Note : This is quite useful when you are leaving your system for sometime. For an example if you are playing some songs in winamp. so you can schedule shutdown with seconds as parameter.

Ex1 : for 1 hour
 C:\Docmen~\Mahe>shutdown.exe -s -f -t 3600 -c "Windows will get shutdown in 1 hour-Mahe"

I tried this in my PC working smoothly…..movin 2 lunch
