    Nice and simple.  However you may want to explain what the "-s" " -t" " 0" mean so values can be adjusted.

    -t and 0 is the time until shutdown occurs, it is 0 so therefore shutdown will occur immediately. You can therefore change the value to whatever suits your need. :)

    1 star rating, 'cause you didn't bother including the modifier descriptions, even after atombomb1945 asked for them. The rest is an above average how-to. Thanks for making it, though... not too many people realize that shutting down Windows is actually a program that runs.
