    Re: Shutdown message (xp)

    Please clarify what do you want to do:

    - when you click Start | Shut Down, a dialog window "Shut Down Windows" pops up with the text "What do you want the computer to do?"

    - when you hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete and click Shutdown button, "Shutdown Windows" dialog pops up with the text "Shutting down will end your Windows session..."

    Do you want to modify these dialogs?

    Re: Shutdown message (xp)

    I want to have a dialog windows with a message defined by myself. I would like to have this windows that stops the shutdown process till I click OK. I have a laptop and a docking station with a separate docking to charge the long life battery, mostly every time that I leave the office with the laptop I forget the long life battery on the docking. So this utility would be a reminder.
    Thanks for your help.

    Re: Shutdown message (xp)

    Since you're running XP:
    go to Control Panel/System/Computer Name and under Computer Description, type the message you want such as :
    BATTERY REMOVED??

    Log Off via Start Button.

    In the Log Off screen which pops up, will now be the option to Turn Off : BATTERY REMOVED??

    I have tried this option but it doesn't work maybe because I am connected in a company network.

    Thanks for your help.
