Shutdown method of the CIM_OperatingSystem class

The Shutdown method requests a shutdown of the operating system. The implementation or subclass of the operating system can establish dependencies between the Shutdown and Reboot methods. For example, more sophisticated capabilities can be provided, such as a scheduled shutdown and reboot.

Important

The DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) CIM (Common Information Model) classes are the parent classes upon which WMI classes are built. WMI currently supports only the CIM 2.x version schemas.

This topic uses Managed Object Format (MOF) syntax. For more information about using this method see Calling a Method.
