Shutdown Icon - Need Help!

    I've made shutdown and restart "shortcut" icons for my desktop as per the tweaks on this site.

    For the shutdown Icon - I used this:
    "C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 00"

    The problem is I have APM enabled and a normal shutdown will turn off the computer.

    However, my shortcut icon will only bring the system down to the screen: "it is now safe to turn off your computer".

    I tried looking at the options for shutdown.exe (shutdown /?) and did not see anything related.

    Thanks for any help

    ok, this isn't a solution...but you can always just set your power button on your comp if it is a newer comp to do a shutdow...anytime I want to shut down I just hit the power button and bam, shutdown runs and the comp turns off..just as easy as a icon :)

    shutdown.exe -u -f -t 00

    Try using the version of shutdown.exe available here: with these switches shutdown.exe -u -f -t 00.

    Hope that helps.
