    I get a batch file, it works fine, but I would like to add code at the end of
    file to shut down XP.
    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to add code to shut down XP for
    batch file?
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions

    ======================================
    I don't know anything about batch files but maybe
    the following info will offer something you can use:

    shutdown -s -t 0
    PATH: %windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 0

    restart -r -t 0
    PATH: %windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -r -t 0

    Here's how to put an icon on your desktop that'll
    shut down your machine quickly:

    1. Right-click any empty location on your desktop.

    2. Click New, Shortcut.

    The Create Shortcut Wizard appears.

    3. In the Type the Location of the Item box, type shutdown -s -t 0

    I have a similar issue. The scheduled task for C:/Windows
    \system32\shutdown.exe doesn't appear to work if the computer is
    locked by me and I have the "Run if user is logged on" checkbox
    checked. Any suggestions?

    Have a look at the output from the command

    shutdown /?

    especially the /f switch. Very informative and essential reading when
    writing batch files.

    I don't have an XP box handy right now to try it but here are the command
    line switches for the shutdown that you can try.

    Usage: shutdown [/i | /l | /s | /r | /g | /a | /p | /h | /e] [/f]
    [/m \\computer][/t xxx][/d [p|u:]xx:yy [/c "comment"]]

    No args Display help. This is the same as typing /?.
    /? Display help. This is the same as not typing any options.
    /i Display the graphical user interface (GUI).
    This must be the first option.
    /l Log off. This cannot be used with /m or /d options.
    /s Shutdown the computer.
    /r Shutdown and restart the computer.
    /g Shutdown and restart the computer. After the system is
    rebooted, restart any registered applications.
    /a Abort a system shutdown.
    This can only be used during the time-out period.
    /p Turn off the local computer with no time-out or warning.
    Can be used with /d and /f options.
    /h Hibernate the local computer.
    Can be used with the /f option.
    /e Document the reason for an unexpected shutdown of a computer.
    /m \\computer Specify the target computer.
    /t xxx Set the time-out period before shutdown to xxx seconds.
    The valid range is 0-600, with a default of 30.
    Using /t xxx implies the /f option.
    /c "comment" Comment on the reason for the restart or shutdown.
    Maximum of 512 characters allowed.
    /f Force running applications to close without forewarning
    users.
    /f is automatically set when used in conjunction with /t xxx.
    /d [p|u:]xx:yy Provide the reason for the restart or shutdown.
    p indicates that the restart or shutdown is planned.
    u indicates that the reason is user defined.
    if neither p nor u is specified the restart or shutdown is
    unplanned.
    xx is the major reason number (positive integer less than
    256).
    yy is the minor reason number (positive integer less than
    65536).

    Reasons on this computer:
    (E = Expected U = Unexpected P = planned, C = customer defined)
    Type Major Minor Title

    U 0 0 Other (Unplanned)
    E 0 0 Other (Unplanned)
    E P 0 0 Other (Planned)
    U 0 5 Other Failure: System Unresponsive
    E 1 1 Hardware: Maintenance (Unplanned)
    E P 1 1 Hardware: Maintenance (Planned)
    E 1 2 Hardware: Installation (Unplanned)
    E P 1 2 Hardware: Installation (Planned)
    P 2 3 Operating System: Upgrade (Planned)
    E 2 4 Operating System: Reconfiguration (Unplanned)
    E P 2 4 Operating System: Reconfiguration (Planned)
    P 2 16 Operating System: Service pack (Planned)
    2 17 Operating System: Hot fix (Unplanned)
    P 2 17 Operating System: Hot fix (Planned)
    2 18 Operating System: Security fix (Unplanned)
    P 2 18 Operating System: Security fix (Planned)
    E 4 1 Application: Maintenance (Unplanned)
    E P 4 1 Application: Maintenance (Planned)
    E P 4 2 Application: Installation (Planned)
    E 4 5 Application: Unresponsive
    E 4 6 Application: Unstable
    U 5 15 System Failure: Stop error
    E 5 19 Security issue
    U 5 19 Security issue
    E P 5 19 Security issue
    E 5 20 Loss of network connectivity (Unplanned)
    U 6 11 Power Failure: Cord Unplugged
    U 6 12 Power Failure: Environment
    P 7 0 Legacy API shutdown

    Using the /f switch is a bad idea if there will be any apps running when
    you do the shutdown, since it pulls the rug out from under without
    giving them an opportunity to clean up after themselves.

    There's also a bug in shutdown that prevents it from working for users
    who don't have "Administrator" privileges.

    http://blogs.msdn.com/aaron_margosis/archive/2006/01/27/518214.aspx

    which involves giving the "SeRemoteShutdownPrivilege" privilege to the
    user ID.

    The phony "MVP" speaks again. Avoid its advice at all costs, including the
    good posters it always maligns.
