P:\test>shutdown Usage: shutdown [-i | -l | -s | -r | -a] [-f] [-m \\computername] [-t +xx] [-c "comment"] [-d up:xx:yy] No args Display this message (same as -?) -i Display GUI interface, must be the fir +st option -l Log off (cannot be used with -m option +) -s Shutdown the computer -r Shutdown and restart the computer -a Abort a system shutdown -m \\computername Remote computer to shutdown/restart/ab +ort -t xx Set timeout for shutdown to xx seconds -c "comment" Shutdown comment (maximum of 127 chara +cters) -f Forces running applications to close w +ithout warning -d [u][p]:xx:yy The reason code for the shutdown u is the user code p is a planned shutdown code xx is the major reason code (positive +integer less than 256) yy is the minor reason code (positive +integer less than 65536)
