Thanks to Mirkwood for this very fast Comment, but the example is Visual Basic and I need a C++ Example (I know nothing about Visual Basic).
Thanks anyway

Check the following URLs:
  http://premium.microsoft.com/msdn/library/sdkdoc/sysmgmt/shutdown_5g6q.htm
  http://premium.microsoft.com/msdn/library/sdkdoc/sysmgmt/shutdown_5q25.htm

[The first time you access MSDN-online you'll have to go through a one-time registeration process]

You don't need specific include files, just the regular:

    #define STRICT
    #include <windows.h>

And the actual call is something like:

    ExitWindowsEx(EWX_SHUTDOWN, 0);

Is that wnat you need?

Oops,

I left out the last part of this....



            if(!InitiateSystemShutdown(NULL, "Shutting Down...", 5, bForceReboot, FALSE)){
                  wsprintf(szBuf, "Error %d in InitiateSystemShutdown()", GetLastError());
              AfxMessageBox(szBuf, MB_OK);
                  EndDialog(IDC_REBOOT);

Done!  I'm glad it works for you.

BTW, jhance's answer is more general, in that it can be used to shutdown a remote workstation with only minor modifications.
