I have created a shortcut with the following command: shutdown.exe -s.
Well it waits 20 seconds to shut down. What do I have to do for it to shut
down right away.

Thanks.

Remember the old DOS days when you had to park the HD? Fun times!

Understand I'm not telling you the answer, but how to find the answer.

I did but you are too stupid. Try typing shutdown in help as you lack the
ability to use command line help.

shutdown.exe -s -t 00

If you type shutdown /? at a command prompt, it will show you a list of
all the switches and explain their functions.

He obviously was asking for help because he didnt know how to find the
answer.
I understand your method of trying to teach someone how to find the
information, but to call them stupid after that?

If you hold the power on buttun down for 3 to 5 seconds it will shutdown and
turn off immediately. Not a good idea but it IS fast.
