Shutdown/Restart Windows Without Long API Calls

To shutdown Windows, just type the following code:

      Shell "shutdown -s -t 00"

To restart windows:

       Shell "shutdown -r -t 00"

Here’s the key:

  • -s means shutdown.
  • -r means restart.
  • -t means timeout.
  • 00 is the timeout value, and can be changed randomly.
