This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Somebody made a program here that you may find relevant.

enter image description here

You can manually make a shutdown script by

  1. Open notepad and pasting the following text C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -s -t 00
  2. Save the file as shutdownScript.bat
  3. When you run this script it will shutdown your computer, make a shortcut to the script

This should work a way, but looking for desktop, taskbar or a keyboard shortcut. – DOM Nov 7 '12 at 13:28
Keep the shutdownScript.bat file on the desktop and click on it. I don't find why that isn't viable. – JKarthik Nov 7 '12 at 13:35
