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.
You can make a shortcut that points to shutdown.exe in the c:\windows\system32 directory. In the target box you should have something that looks like this "c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 0". You can download the shortcut I made and then modify it if you need to so that it points to the right drive. If you want to know what the suffixes mean, go to start > run > type "cmd".... at the command prompt, type "shutdown". This will give you a list of the different suffixes available and what they do.
Hope this helps.

NM... I started writing this post b4 doofus posted his... so we kinda doubled up. but you still might want to download the shortcut.

Had this problem once with 98se it was to do with fast shutdown being enabled -
Try this...
General tab
Click Advanced
Check the box for "disable fast shutdown"
