# Shutdown VAIO when it requires a restart?

Whenever my VAIO laptop auto-updates its VAIO Care/Update/Whatever, it prompts me with: "your VAIO must restart for the installation to complete."
Why would I want to reboot? I don't know. If I just turn off the machine, it will just prompt me with the exact same crap upon the next boot.

How can I just shut down the machine with VAIO Control/Puppetmaster/Hoyvin still completing its installation?
I reckon it's just a tweak in the registry somewhere…

Yes, this is possible. Run shutdown.exe /s /t 0 to do a full shutdown. –  magicandre1981 Jan 23 '13 at 19:31
