    you can do almost everything except hibernating :(

    Creating a ShutdownReboot Icon

    WindowsXP has a program called SHUTDOWN.EXE which allows you to easily create icons to shutdown or restart your computer.
    To create a shutdown shortcut on the desktop:
    1. Right click on an open area of the desktop
    2. Select New / Shortcut
    3. Enter in "shutdown -s -t 00" - no quotes
    4. Press the Next button
    5. For the name, enter in anything you like. Click on the Finish button.

    For a reboot, enter "shutdown -r -t 00"

    Shutdown [{-l|-s|-r|-a}] [-f] [-m [\\ComputerName]] [-t xx] [-c "message"] [-d[p]:xx:yy]
    • -l - Logs off the current user, this is also the defualt. -m ComputerName takes precedence.
    • -s - Shuts down the local computer.
    • -r - Reboots after shutdown.
    • -a - Aborts shutdown. Ignores other parameters, except -l and ComputerName. You can only use -a during the time-out period.
    • -f - Forces running applications to close.
    • -m [\\ComputerName] - Specifies the computer that you want to shut down.
    • -t xx - Sets the timer for system shutdown in xx seconds. The default is 20 seconds.
    • -c "message" - Specifies a message to be displayed in the Message area of the System Shutdown window. You can use a maximum of 127 characters. You must enclose the message in quotation marks.

    and btw welcome to the forums :D
