Shutdown.exe May 2003 for XP

  CASP2 13:43 29 Mar 03

p125 of your magazine provides details of how to create the power off button along with the CD.

Have tried and failed to get this to work : note the file reference in the magazine is shutdown.exe-u and the CD is only shutdown.exe is this the problem?

I am using Windows XP Home..

Create a shortcut on your desktop to Shutdown. exe. Right click on the desktop and choose, New > Shortcut, Browse to The Windows\System32 folder and select Shutdown.exe. When the shortcut is created on your desktop, right click it, choose Properties > Shortcut tab and in the Target field, type or paste:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 30

You can change the 30 to however many seconds you want to wait before shutdown.
