Shortcuts to Shutdown and Restart

  Graham. 17:27 09 Oct 2007

To put on your Desktop:

"c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe" /s /t 1

"c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe" /r /t 1

The '1' is for 1 second, change it if you wish.

To make a Shortcut, right click the desktop, New, Shortcut.

I couldn't get any of those on your link to work. I found these on another forum:

I followed your link to click here, but none of the suggestions worked for me.

If it is old news to you, why did you not contribute to my thread click here ?

Thanks, those are far more elegant.

Are there shortcuts for Standby and Hibernate?

Incidentally, in my 'research', I discovered that if you press Shift in the Start shutdown menu, 'Standby' changes to 'Hibernate'. May be old news to some.

Thanks, I'm on XP Home. Both those initiate Hibernate on mine.

Just Standby to find now...
