Setting Custom Shutdown Message

Hi, I'm new to windows development work. and I've Windows 7 installed. Now, I want to set a custom shutdown message - a custom message that I want to appear for sometime after I click the Shutdown button.
Actually, my prob is that I've a portable mouse and keyboard. I always forget to turn it off after shutting down. I think that doesn't matter. This is a good discussion if there are programmers here. I also tried scripting, compiling and using registry hackers but really it didn't help. I'd like to change it all by myself.

Any help would be really appreciated
