The InitiateSystemShutdown function initiates a shutdown and optional restart of the specified computer.

To record a reason for the shutdown in the event log, call the InitiateSystemShutdownEx function.


This is straight from MSDN January 2000 edition.

Infact what you should be looking at is the WM_QUERYENDSESSION and WM_ENDSESSION messages




case WM_QUERYENDSESSION :
 {
  ReportingMeasure("WM_QUERYENDSESSION");      
  return FALSE;
 }
case WM_ENDSESSION :
 {
  BOOL fEndSession = (BOOL) wParam;     // end-session flag
  BOOL fLogOff =  lParam;               // logoff flag

 if(lParam & ENDSESSION_LOGOFF) // really logging off else we're shutting down
ReportingMeasure("WM_ENDSESSION");
 return FALSE ;
 }
 
Where reportingMeasure appears - do what you have to do when shuttingdown

If you need more ask
