Can some body tell me .. how to generate shortcut of button to shut down system

through folder command

do bat file

What do you type to do it to someone else computer

just open notepad

write:

@echo_off

pause

echo press any button

pause

-s

-t 60

then just save it as .bat file and send it to someone, then they have to open it and press any button, then it will shut down

@echo off
cd \
shutdown -s -c "Your Display Massage" -t 60

Such noobish noob nobberish!!!!! Anyways, to really F with someone, create a shortcut with your shutdown command, and drag the shortcut into the "startup" folder in the start menu. Then the shutdown and comment will occur every-single time that the user logs in. (Don't set the timer too short or else you won't have enough time to delete the shortcut from the startup folder when your done screwing with them : ) )

na no one nowswhat to do its simple go to stat ont the left hand sie of the computer scre and type in on he serch shutdown -a and the log off wil be cancelled!!!
