as John suggested, you can put the command in a desktop shortcut and
assign a shortcut to trigger a shutdown.

in the target edit field type exactly or copy/paste:

C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -s -t 0

the keystroke I assigned is control+alt+shift+s. assign whatever keys
you'd like.

the s is for shutdown and the t is for milliseconds.
you can create one for restarting, just sub r for s.

Are you talking about using the run command?
Unloading jaws, loading Narrator and doing a standard shut down or
restart seems easier until I find out why the ---- this is happening.

Thanks Don, yes, I thought I was writing to the other list. O well.
Since forwarding is frowned upon, but I guess I need to change the names
in my contacts so they are quite different.

I am no longer getting the shut down anyway. I've had my wife look, and
after a very short couple of seconds, it just sits there saying shutting
down.
I've waited several minutes until I have to just power it off.
But, this never happens if I'm running narrator at the time of shut down.

If I have Jaws 2018, or Jaws 2019 load at login and after login, when I
go to shut down or restart, the operation is blocked and there is
nothing I can do other than power down.

I only had one version loading of course, but I tried with each separately.

If I use Narrator at login and after login, I can restart or shut down
with no issues what so ever.



Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, how was it resolved?



Thanks,

Richard
