Default New shut down trick :) (play it on your friends)

- Right click background
- New / shortcut
- in box where it says, "type the location of the item" type, shutdown -s -t 30 -c "your message here"


Shutdown -s (seconds) -t(time) 30(time in seconds, put how long or short) -c (comment) "type a message that will show up in box"

- Click next
- in box where it says, "type a name for this shortcut" give it a name for something that one of your friend use a lot, IE. Internet Explorer
- Right click on shortcut you just made
- Properties/Change icon/OK/select internet explorer icon/OK

and your set. to cancel the shutdown, do the following
- shutdown -a

and your safe

*Trying to do:
to be able for a folder to open up and have it frozen open and have the shutdown timer still counting down. If you know how to do this, please post how.

(if you want images of how to do, let me know)

Consistent learning is key

I remember I made a cd that shuts down the computer. It is very easy you make an autorun that will run the batch file with the shutdown command, so when you insert the cd the computer shuts down.
