    You could use the shutdown command from the cli.
    I am currently on knoppix so I cannot give you al the options.

    Also I found this @ MS, it might help

    go to www.download.com and do a search for x setup....it is a full featured XP tweaker that will solve this and many other issues. And, of course, it's free....my favorite 4 letter word!
    It isn't paranoia when you KNOW they're out to get you...
