I am trying to capture the WM_POWERBROADCAST in Windows XP

Any coding help with how to capture this message in XP?  I found an example in VB, but would like to know for sure it is possible outside the windows embedded environment.

Any help appreciated- thanks!

Just like any other windows message:

LRESULT CALLBACK WindowProc(
  HWND hwnd,      // handle to window
  UINT uMsg,      // message identifier
  WPARAM wParam,  // first message parameter
  LPARAM lParam   // second message parameter
)
{
    switch(uMsg)
    {
        case WM_POWERBROADCAST:
           //... handle msg here

    }

    return DefWindowProc(hwnd,uMsg,wParam,lParam);
}
