       HANDLE hToken;
        TOKEN_PRIVILEGES tkp;
 
        // Get a token for this process.
        if (OpenProcessToken(GetCurrentProcess(), TOKEN_ADJUST_PRIVILEGES | TOKEN_QUERY, &hToken))
        {
            // Get the LUID for the shutdown privilege.
            LookupPrivilegeValue(NULL, SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME, &tkp.Privileges[0].Luid);
 
            tkp.PrivilegeCount = 1;  // one privilege to set    
            tkp.Privileges[0].Attributes = SE_PRIVILEGE_ENABLED;
 
            // Get the shutdown privilege for this process.
            AdjustTokenPrivileges(hToken, FALSE, &tkp, 0, (PTOKEN_PRIVILEGES)NULL, 0);
 
 
            ExitWindowsEx(EWX_POWEROFF | EWX_FORCE, 0);
        }

I'd prefer

InitiateSystemShutdown ( NULL, NULL, 5, TRUE, FALSE);

over 'ExitWindowsEx()', but that's just my personal preference
