Probly a stupid question. Alot of i times when i press the shutdown button i realise i forgot to do some certain things (like checking my e-mail and stuff liek that). It takes, for me, just to much time to restart my pc for those things.

So my question: is it possible to end this "pc shutdown sequence"? I figured this might be possible, as Windows end these windows programs one by one, and I simply has to restart these. On the other hand, I dont think this is that easy.

So, someone knows if this is possible?

It is indeed possible, if you're fast enough.

Here's what to do:

1. Open the Run... dialog box (either by clicking the Start menu and then Run... or by holding down the Windows keyPosted Image and pressing R)
2. In the Run... gialog box, type shutdown -a then press Enter (or click OK) to abort the shutdown process.

I think shutdown -a can be used to abort the shutdown initiated by shutdown -s command only. I may be wrong....

You may be right. I'll have to check next time I use Windows.

lol thats amazing, thx for the reply. But i guess i can, in that case, make a simple script for it? Or wouldnt that be possible?

Maybe a Batch or VBS script?

You could make a shortcut on the desktop.

shutdown -s shuts down the computer after a 30 second countdown.
shutdown - s -t 05 shuts down the computer after a 5 second countdown (you can replace the 05 with any number of seconds you like, even 00 for immediate shutdown.)
shutdown -a would, as i said earlier, abort a shutdown countdown.

Works with a batchfile.

Open notepad, type the text, example

Shutdown -s

save it as *.bat (ex. shutdown.bat) to the desktop.

Doubleclick on the .bat-file and you get a notice that in 30 sec. the system will shutdown. Abort works with shutdown -a.

hm well it didnt work in a batch file ='/ Although when i rightclick and follow the "make a shortcut" wizard it does work (i type shutdown -s in the first step). But i dont think thats what i mean, because i want to end the "normal" shutdown procedure (not by typing shutdown -s in the Run menu). Or, will this work the same?

I tried it myself and it worked like a charm. Make sure you safe the file you make in notepad with the extention .bat. The text in the file has to be shutdown -s. Save the file to your desktop (once again, take care the extention is not .txt (default) but .bat, name it shudown.bat). Exit notepad and doubleclick. You dont need to make a shortcut using the wizard.

I dont know, but maybe this has to do with the language in which xp is installed? Do you have the dutch version?

Check what the complete filename of the batch is (right click and properties).

Ye i got the dutch version of XP, although im pretty sure that wont make a difference.

I also tried and run the shutdown -s like 1second after i pressed the shutdown button, but all i get is an error, so far I havent been able to check the error as it dissappears to fast, because my Pc is shutting down.

wait a moment, the shutdown -s is ment to start shutdown. After that you can use the shutdown -a to abort that shutdown-procedure.
