Shutdown command restarts the computer



  • Any idea why the shoutdown command does restart the computer instead of shuting it down?:

    This are the parameter for the command:

    Command: shutdown /r /t 2
    Ground: background

    Thanks



  • @skainet,

    If you want to shut the computer down instead of reboot, replace /r with /s.

    If you type shutdown /?, you'll see all of the shutdown command's parameters.

    Usage: shutdown [/i | /l | /s | /sg | /r | /g | /a | /p | /h | /e | /o] [/hybrid] [/soft] [/fw] [/f]
        [/m \\computer][/t xxx][/d [p|u:]xx:yy [/c "comment"]]
    
        No args    Display help. This is the same as typing /?.
        /?         Display help. This is the same as not typing any options.
        /i         Display the graphical user interface (GUI).
                   This must be the first option.
        /l         Log off. This cannot be used with /m or /d options.
        /s         Shutdown the computer.
        /sg        Shutdown the computer. On the next boot, if Automatic Restart Sign-On
                   is enabled, automatically sign in and lock last interactive user.
                   After sign in, restart any registered applications.
        /r         Full shutdown and restart the computer.
        /g         Full shutdown and restart the computer. After the system is rebooted,
                   if Automatic Restart Sign-On is enabled, automatically sign in and
                   lock last interactive user.
                   After sign in, restart any registered applications.
        /a         Abort a system shutdown.
                   This can only be used during the time-out period.
                   Combine with /fw to clear any pending boots to firmware.
        /p         Turn off the local computer with no time-out or warning.
                   Can be used with /d and /f options.
        /h         Hibernate the local computer.
                   Can be used with the /f option.
        /hybrid    Performs a shutdown of the computer and prepares it for fast startup.
                   Must be used with /s option.
        /fw        Combine with a shutdown option to cause the next boot to go to the
                   firmware user interface.
        /e         Document the reason for an unexpected shutdown of a computer.
        /o         Go to the advanced boot options menu and restart the computer.
                   Must be used with /r option.
        /m \\computer Specify the target computer.
        /t xxx     Set the time-out period before shutdown to xxx seconds.
                   The valid range is 0-315360000 (10 years), with a default of 30.
                   If the timeout period is greater than 0, the /f parameter is
                   implied.
        /c "comment" Comment on the reason for the restart or shutdown.
                   Maximum of 512 characters allowed.
        /f         Force running applications to close without forewarning users.
                   The /f parameter is implied when a value greater than 0 is
                   specified for the /t parameter.
        /d [p|u:]xx:yy  Provide the reason for the restart or shutdown.
                   p indicates that the restart or shutdown is planned.
                   u indicates that the reason is user defined.
                   If neither p nor u is specified the restart or shutdown is
                   unplanned.
                   xx is the major reason number (positive integer less than 256).
                   yy is the minor reason number (positive integer less than 65536).
