About FRSPCShutdown

FRSPCShutdown is a command-line utility that causes your computer to shut down and power off.

It skips all the clicking and confirming that Windows makes you do when you try to shut down your computer. FRSPCShutdown calls the exact same system function that Windows itself uses, so all of your applications will be able to gracefully shut down, and prompt you to save their data, if applicable.

Using FRSPCShutdown

FRSPCShutdown displays no user interface. This is done on purpose, so that you can use it within a .bat file or other scripting file, to trigger the computer to be shut down after your script does some work. Or, simply double-click on the application's icon on the Windows Desktop, if you had the installation program create a shortcut for you there.

To use FRSPCShutdown in a Windows command-line batch file (e.g. "myscript.bat"), do the following:

CALL C:\FRS\FRSPCShutdown\FRSPCShutdown.exe

That's all! An example usage might be that you write a .bat script that makes a back-up copy of all of your data files that you changed that day. At the end of that script, you launch FRSPCShutdown. Now, when you are done using your computer for the day, you double-click on that .bat file, and walk away from your computer. The batch file will then make a back-up copy of the files, and then shut down your computer when it is all done. You don't have to sit there and wait for it.
