Try using

ExitWindowsEx()

Here is a snippet from the help file.....
--------------------------------
The ExitWindowsEx function either logs off, shuts down, or shuts down and restarts the system.

BOOL ExitWindowsEx(

    UINT  uFlags,      // shutdown operation
    DWORD  dwReserved       // reserved
   );      
Parameters

uFlags

Specifies the type of shutdown. This parameter must be some combination of the following values:

Value      Meaning
EWX_FORCE      Forces processes to terminate. Instead of bringing up the "application not responding" dialog box for the user, this value forces an application to terminate if it does not respond.
EWX_LOGOFF      Shuts down all processes running in the security context of the process that called the ExitWindowsEx function. Then it logs the user off.
EWX_POWEROFF      Shuts down the system and turns off the power. The application must have the SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME privilege (for more information, see the Remarks section) and the system must support the power-off feature.
EWX_REBOOT      Shuts down the system and then restarts the system. The application must have the SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME privilege (for more information, see the Remarks section).
EWX_SHUTDOWN      Shuts down the system to a point at which it is safe to turn off the power. All file buffers have been flushed to disk, and all running processes have stopped. The application must have the SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME privilege (for more information, see the Remarks section).
dwReserved

Reserved; this parameter is ignored.
