Abort a Shutdown (command line tip of the day)

Thursday, November 10, 2005

Today at work, all connected computers to the network suddenly displayed a message saying that the system was going to shut down in 4 hours for a reboot and that your computer would be turned off. Luckily, there was a 4 hour grace period. But what about those occasional messages in Windoze when you have 30 seconds to shutdown and you have to backup your data and save your work? Well, let's abort that damn shutdown message.

Go to your 'Start' button, and hit 'Run'.
From Run, type in 'cmd' for the command terminal.
Then type in 'shutdown -a' excluding the '.
