Sorry it should be this to shutdown

InitiateSystemShutdown(nil, nil, 10, True, False);

Platform SDK: Windows System Information

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.

BOOL InitiateSystemShutdown(
  LPTSTR lpMachineName,      // computer name
  LPTSTR lpMessage,          // message to display
  DWORD dwTimeout,           // length of time to display
  BOOL bForceAppsClosed,     // force closed option
  BOOL bRebootAfterShutdown  // reboot option
[in] Pointer to the null-terminated string that specifies the network name of the computer to shut down. If lpMachineName is NULL or an empty string, the function shuts down the local computer.
[in] Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies a message to display in the shutdown dialog box. This parameter can be NULL if no message is required.
Windows XP: This string is also stored as a comment in the event log entry.

[in] Specifies the time (in seconds) that the shutdown dialog box should be displayed. While this dialog box is displayed, the shutdown can be stopped by the AbortSystemShutdown function.
If dwTimeout is not zero, InitiateSystemShutdown displays a dialog box on the specified computer. The dialog box displays the name of the user who called the function, displays the message specified by the lpMessage parameter, and prompts the user to log off. The dialog box beeps when it is created and remains on top of other windows in the system. The dialog box can be moved but not closed. A timer counts down the remaining time before a forced shutdown.

If dwTimeout is zero, the computer shuts down without displaying the dialog box, and the shutdown cannot be stopped by AbortSystemShutdown.

[in] Specifies whether applications with unsaved changes are to be forcibly closed. If this parameter is TRUE, such applications are closed. If this parameter is FALSE, a dialog box is displayed prompting the user to close the applications.
[in] Specifies whether the computer is to restart immediately after shutting down. If this parameter is TRUE, the computer is to restart. If this parameter is FALSE, the system flushes all caches to disk, clears the screen, and displays a message indicating that it is safe to power down.
Return Values
If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero."
