Another one to try: PowerOff, for both GUI and commandline.

Yet another one: PsShutdown, which isn't able to hibernate.

A commercial alternative is TrueLaunchBar, a replacement for the QuickLaunch bar, which has a plugin named Turn Off Computer.

Some days ago I downloaded Power Off and put a button for it in the button bar.
There is an option in this programm which allows you to power off etc. the computer "after a process stops" and then you can choose between different processes. I'd like to shutdown my pc after a dowload with TC has been finished. Is there a process name for this which I can add or perhaps there might be another way to shutdown the computer automatically after the download is over?

If you use WinXP, there is a much simpler way. :wink: Use Windows own 'shutdown.exe' command.

Use the following strings in of the buttons:

C:\windows\System32\shutdown.exe -s -t 00'
C:\windows\System32\shutdown.exe -r -t 00'

-The first for shutdown, the second for hibernate.

For further info, see:
http://www.budja.com/shutdown/readme.html
----------

PS: If you use WinME (possibly Win98) you can use the following strings for shutdown:

C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL32.EXE SHELL32.DLL,SHExitWindowsEx 1

for Reboot:
C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL32.EXE SHELL32.DLL,SHExitWindowsEx 2

I just found out, that 'shutdown.exe' is NOT a standard WinXP file. :oops:
I was fooled by the location: 'system32'
Anyway, it's freeware and you can get it here:

It came stock with my version of XP (pro)... shutdown.exe 17k - 8-23-2001

I use

%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -t 00
as a shortcut target

to shut down and

%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -r -t 00

to restart...

Yes, but Windows version and the other one you can download from the indicated site are different. With the last one you can also hibernate and stand by; with windows standard this is not possible (and it's very strange...)

OK! The conclusion must be, that 2 versions of 'shutdown.exe' for WinXP exists:
1) A build-in with command-line options for reboot & shutdown, and possibly delay.
2) A downloadable (see above) with more options for suspend/hibernate.
I am, at this moment, not running WinXP, så I cannot personally verify this.

PS: next time, I post something on the TC-board, I will make a better 'research' on the topic, ...and perhaps make myself worthy of a 'member'-status. :D

System32 is in the PATH by default, so you just can run

shutdown -s -t 00

for example from Commander command line...[/face]

Yep, there are a lot of them, for example psshutdown.exe from Mark Russinovich PsTools. But I like down.exe more.

I have free licence from author... ;)

Well, I did. What can I say... It's not a marker to Winconsole.[/face]
