How to disable shutdown warning message


G

Guest

hello,
I want to shutdown my XPe system by pushing the power button even if someone
is logged on (active connection through remote desktop). My system is a set
top box and therefore there is any display nor HID on it.
I tried with the automatic reply but it isn't a good solution. For example I
can't install a certificate once auto reply is on. I tried with a shutdown
script (gpedit.msc) but the script is launched a log time after the message
popup.
I'm wondering if there is any registry trick or something else to force
disconnection without prompting any warning message?
Thanks a lot for your help !

Hi Papatchel,

Although I don't know how to disable it I can tell you how to make it
disappear after 1 ms. :)

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]
"ShutdownWarningDialogTimeout"=dword:00000001

HTH,
Brad

Actually, that might not work on XP, only Server 2003. So, what you may be
able to do is write a small app that handles the power broadcast for a
shutdown and calls InitiateShutdown with the SHUTDOWN_FORCE_OTHERS flag set.
Here is a link to MSDN.
