heyg uys, i've been running a lot of programs through my command prompt here at work. It uses less memory then it would if a ran everything through windows. I have a stupid program on here that reverts the HDD if i use up too much memory.

So my question to you all-knowing UGers is...How do i shutdown my computer through my Command Prompt?


Thanks

If you can't convince them; confuse them.

You mean command prompt as in pure DOS? I thought you didn't shut it down, just turned off the computer. Don't quote me though, never tried it.

If in command prompt, shutdown -s -t 00

If in DOS, i can't remember.

shutdown /l /t:10 "The computer is shutting down" /y /c


It says

'shutdown' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

It seems no matter what i type to try and shut it down it gives me that same message...
