How to properly shutdown ASE Server

Hello,
I have two questions:

1.
  I am running ASE 12 on WINNT.
Is there a proper way to shutdown the server?
What do I need to do to properly stop the server
before shutdown/restart the computer so that ASE won't
try to "recover" when the computer is back online.

2.  Is there a way you can set the server so that it would automatically purge/clean up the log files?
The way I do it now is once in a while I have to issue
the dump trans/database <dbname> with no_log.  

Regards.

1)Throught the isql prompt to shutdown the server will be

checkpoint

shutdown with wait

2)The command for having your logs purged is  
use master
go
sp_dboption database ,'trunc log on chkpt'
