Displaying the Shutdown Dialog Box

The following example reboots the local system using the InitiateSystemShutdown function. The system displays a dialog box with a custom message and a message to the user to close applications within the specified time-out interval (30 seconds). After the time-out interval elapses, the system is restarted.

The application must enable the SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME privilege before calling InitiateSystemShutdown. For more information, see Privileges.


#include <windows.h>

#pragma comment( lib, "advapi32.lib" )

BOOL MySystemShutdown( LPTSTR lpMsg )
{
   HANDLE hToken;              // handle to process token 
   TOKEN_PRIVILEGES tkp;       // pointer to token structure 
 
   BOOL fResult;               // system shutdown flag 
 
   // Get the current process token handle so we can get shutdown 
   // privilege. 
 
   if (!OpenProcessToken(GetCurrentProcess(), 
        TOKEN_ADJUST_PRIVILEGES | TOKEN_QUERY, &hToken)) 
      return FALSE; 
 
   // Get the LUID for shutdown privilege. 
 
   LookupPrivilegeValue(NULL, SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME, 
        &tkp.Privileges[0].Luid); 
 
   tkp.PrivilegeCount = 1;  // one privilege to set    
   tkp.Privileges[0].Attributes = SE_PRIVILEGE_ENABLED; 
 
   // Get shutdown privilege for this process. 
 
   AdjustTokenPrivileges(hToken, FALSE, &tkp, 0, 
      (PTOKEN_PRIVILEGES) NULL, 0); 
 
   // Cannot test the return value of AdjustTokenPrivileges. 
 
   if (GetLastError() != ERROR_SUCCESS) 
      return FALSE; 
 
   // Display the shutdown dialog box and start the countdown. 
 
   fResult = InitiateSystemShutdown( 
      NULL,    // shut down local computer 
      lpMsg,   // message for user
      30,      // time-out period, in seconds 
      FALSE,   // ask user to close apps 
      TRUE);   // reboot after shutdown 
 
   if (!fResult) 
      return FALSE; 
 
   // Disable shutdown privilege. 
 
   tkp.Privileges[0].Attributes = 0; 
   AdjustTokenPrivileges(hToken, FALSE, &tkp, 0, 
        (PTOKEN_PRIVILEGES) NULL, 0); 
 
   return TRUE; 
}


If the AbortSystemShutdown function is executed in the time-out period specified by InitiateSystemShutdown, the system does not shut down. For example, if PreventSystemShutdown is called after MySystemShutdown, the system closes the dialog box and does not restart the system.


#include <windows.h>

#pragma comment( lib, "advapi32.lib" )

BOOL PreventSystemShutdown()
{
   HANDLE hToken;              // handle to process token 
   TOKEN_PRIVILEGES tkp;       // pointer to token structure 
 
   // Get the current process token handle  so we can get shutdown 
   // privilege. 
 
   if (!OpenProcessToken(GetCurrentProcess(), 
         TOKEN_ADJUST_PRIVILEGES | TOKEN_QUERY, &hToken)) 
      return FALSE; 
 
   // Get the LUID for shutdown privilege. 
 
   LookupPrivilegeValue(NULL, SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME, 
         &tkp.Privileges[0].Luid); 
 
   tkp.PrivilegeCount = 1;  // one privilege to set    
   tkp.Privileges[0].Attributes = SE_PRIVILEGE_ENABLED; 
 
   // Get shutdown privilege for this process. 
 
   AdjustTokenPrivileges(hToken, FALSE, &tkp, 0, 
        (PTOKEN_PRIVILEGES)NULL, 0); 
 
   if (GetLastError() != ERROR_SUCCESS) 
      return FALSE; 
 
   // Prevent the system from shutting down. 
 
   if ( !AbortSystemShutdown(NULL) ) 
      return FALSE; 
 
   // Disable shutdown privilege. 
 
   tkp.Privileges[0].Attributes = 0; 
   AdjustTokenPrivileges(hToken, FALSE, &tkp, 0, 
       (PTOKEN_PRIVILEGES) NULL, 0); 
 
   return TRUE;
}
