Shutdown & Restart Shortcuts for Windows XP

Hi Friends,

Recently i was working by logging in remotely on a Windows XP computer. I wanted to shutdown the remote xp machine, but as you might be aware Windows XP don't provide the option to shutdown when logged in remotely, so i searched for command line options to shutdown/restart/hibernate remote Windows machine, the same works for local machine also.


This command starts a 30-second countdown for a shutdown or restart, which permits you to abort it (with a shutdown -a command). It you want the command to execute, use the -t  flag, which lets you set the time lapse in seconds. The examples below use a 1-second delay.

To RESTART Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN -r -t 01

To SHUT DOWN Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN -s -t 01

Hope this helps.
