Do you have problem, when to wait so long to shutdown our computer/notebook? So, in this post, i wanna to share how to fast shutdown, if we use Window XP. (window Vista, I'm not yet learn). Actually, there must be a lot of way how to fast shutdown, using software , or using gadgets like Google gadget and much more. But in this case, i just show you by below this:- (enjoyed it)

1) Start - Run - Regedit
Navigate to the following Registry key:
HKEY CURRENT USER\Control Panel\Desktop
Double click on the AutoEndTasks entry and replace the 0 with a 1 in the Value data text box

  • For the next two, if the dword value indicated does not exist, create it:
  • Double click on the WaitToKillAppTimeout entry in the right pane and change the Value data to 2000
  • Double click on the HungAppTimeout entry in the right pane and change the Value data to 1000
  • Reboot

If still having a problem, make the next change:

2) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
Right-click on WaitToKillServiceTimeout and change it to 2000

NOTE: The lowest value Windows will recognize is 1000 (1 second)

Remeber: While rare, the "WaitToKillService" tweak can cause problems. If an application is in the process of saving data and the associated service is stopped prematurely, the data will not be saved and may be lost.
