Dear everyone,
I am a software engineer of a control project. I need a function to let NT can automatic shutdown(include power supply). Who can give me some
suggestions to provide this function. Thanks very much.

I suppose it is an external hardware event that should be the trigger. Use the UPS service, it monitors a COM-port and shuts down if a certain
signal changes.

It is accessible from the control panel and the online help would give you the rest of the necesary information.

Try using a UPS with connectivity - we use Deltec (now Powerware) UPSs with Win NT 4.0 all over the place. Software talks to PC using a serial connect - shuts down pc safely when it loses power. Works great.
