Does anyone know if the "PsShutdown.exe" logoff is the same as a regular logoff?

I have a Windows 2003 server that is running a Cluster Administrator of identical Node A & B.  This server runs an enterprise level application and we remote into the server from time to time and when we're done we logoff the server.  Logging off doesn't close the running processes on the server...the application is still running.  

My question is, will using the program from "SysInternals PsTools" called "Psshutdown.exe" perform this logoff in the same exact manor as a regular logoff?  If I run this logoff will the processes running in the background still continue to work? Or will it stop all running programs?

Here's an example of the command:
C:\Tools>psshutdown.exe -o \\100.200.300.4

That's correct, running it with the -o option will just logoff a user.  The only way it would stop a running program is if one of the programs was explicity running under the user that you logged off.
