Here is the scenario...

I have an application that runs in the tray that needs to updates a data file as it unloads.  Since this application runs on startup, it also needs to be able to finish it's "cleanup" before the machine actually finsihes a controlled shutdown.

Is there a clean way to do this?

Something like this... check the unloadmode

Private Sub Form_QueryUnload(Cancel As Integer, UnloadMode As Integer)
  If UnloadMode = vbAppWindows Then
     'finish processing here
  End If
End Sub

That will pause the shutdown process long enough to let my program complete?

yes, it will not terminate until the processing is complete.
