Windows 7: Display reminder when click on shutdown?

20 Oct 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit 6.01.7600

gladson1976, that one didn't work, it hangs at the shutdown screen, no script showed up.

Bump! I want this too. I think (it's just a guess and I could be wrong) it's not showing up because it's opening up in the background. Like when you set up a scheduled task to be "Run whether user is logged on or not" it still runs and you can see it in task manager but it doesn't show up on the screen. What could be done in that case?

    <script language="VBScript">
        Set WshShell=WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
        On Error Resume Next
        menuSel=MsgBox("Have you completed your timesheet ?" & vbCrLf & "Have you sent in the Invoice?" & vbCrLf & "Have you forgotten anything at all?" & vbCrLf & "Think hard!", vbYesNo)
        If menuSel=vbYes Then
            WshShell.Run "Shutdown -a"
        End If
Can you make this script such that instead of prompting it checks for file contents of a specified file on the desktop instead? If the file is empty then proceed with the shutdown otherwise not. Because I think the script does run but any interface isn't displayed to the user. Which explains why

The content-checking might work! But I don't know how to write such scripts myself...

What I want is that when I click on shut down, it will pop up a screen or open a notepad that will say stuff like have you completed your timesheet, sent in invoice and such. Cause I sometime forget to do some stuff and get in trouble.

Is there any easier way beside making a script which I have no clue how to do a script.

I think this page has just the tool you are looking for.

It can display a message when a computer is shutting down/ restarting or even logging off.

It allows me to change the message it displays so I could add what I wanted to be remembered. i.e. in your case you can change the message to "Have you completed your timesheet"

It also shows how (less) memory it uses.

Search for "ILT shutdown alert" or:
