you should handle the following message to your form
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    procedure EndSMsg(var T : TMessage);message  WM_QUERYENDSESSION;
procedure TFOrm1.EndSMsg(var T : TMessage);
  // return false if you want to cancel logoff or shutdown
  T.result := true;
  if T.lparam <> ENDSESSION_LOGOFF then
     //shutting down
  end else
     //login off

regards, igor
