Ever wanted to watch videos in your computer from the bed without the need of standing up and shutting down the computer? Is your computers operating system Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7? Do you own a iOS device? If all the answers were yes, this article is for you!
Lets get to it:

3. Step 3

file (a bat file is like a txt file but with a different file extension, it executes a commands.):
shutdown -s -f -t 60
5. Step 5

8. Step 8
Click on Hot Key Setup button that is located at the bottom of the Server Settings window.
9. Step 9
On the 1, click on Program, browse to your shutdown.bat and select it, At the left of the filepath write a shortcut (I wrote ShDn on mine, why because if I would wrote ShutDown instead of ShDn it would show something like ShutD...).
10. Step 10
On the 2, click on Program, browse to your abort_shutdown.bat and select it, At the left of the filepath write a shortcut (I wrote Abort on mine).
This is how it Should look like:
11. Step 11
Click OK on the Hot Key Setup window, then click Done on the Server Settings window.
12. Step 12
Time to test it: grab your iOS device and open the Mobile Mouse, at the left of the apps keyboard there is an F key, click it, and you are supposed to see ShDn and Abort keys, try them.
