Windows Shutdown Notification

Posted on 2009-05-15
Last Modified: 2012-05-07

I need a notification mechanism for windows shutting / down or logging off, prefferably wthout polling. Also, it would need to hold off the shutdown for a moment while the application prepared itself.

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
