HOW-TO GUIDE ON SHUTDOWN, REBOOT & LOGOFF COMMANDS

FOR WINDOWS (ALL) AND DOS

All of us are aware of the "shutdown" command in Windows XP and above, which provides us not only with the option of shutting down silently, but logging off, restarting, and other stuff- like displaying the reason for shutdown or setting a time-delay before shutdown...

But, here are a lot of other ways of doing this in other version of windows and even in the pure DOS environment:

Conclusion :

Use Andrej Budja's XP Shutdown replacement if you want to poweroff your computer from the command line.

Didier Cassereau's Logoff tool for Windows NT can logoff, shutdown, reboot or power off from the command line.

Jorgen Bosman's PowerOff for all Windows (32-bits) versions can power off, shutdown or reboot your PC, log you off, lock your workstation, go to standby or hibernation mode and even wake up another PC.

All actions can be done locally or on a remote PC (if it is running PowerOff).

The actions can be performed immediately or scheduled, by using its built-in scheduler.

This tool can be used both as a GUI or as a command line tool.

Gibson Research's Wizmo is a collection of tools integrated in a single package.

Among its functions are shutdown, reboot, hibernate and logoff.

And last but not least SysInternals.com's PSSHUTDOWN can perform logoffs, poweroffs, shutdowns and reboots on both local and remote Windows NT 4/2000/XP systems. Absolutely recommended.
