Windows 7 - Shutdown Shortcut

Asked By Jill on 10-Jul-07 07:34 PM
I know how to make a shutdown shortcut... however, I do not know how to
include a conformation that I want to shutdown... can anyone tell me how to
make a shutdown shortcut with a conformation that I really want to

Thanks in advance...

Enter shutdown -s -t 0
Restart: shutdown -r -t 0
Logoff: shutdown -l -t 0
Hibernate: rundll32.exe PowrProf.dll, SetSuspendState Hibernate

If you paste these lines into notepad and save with a .vbs extension, and
then click on it, it will give you an idea of how you can get a confirmation

JillsResponse = _
MsgBox("Hey Jill, do you really really wanna shut me down?", _
vbOKCancel, "Checking If Jill is really sure")
If JillsResponse = vbOK Then
MsgBox "Ok gonna shut down then"
MsgBox "Ok I won't shut down then"
End If
