How to retrieve the list of computer shutdown timing for Windows OS?

Posted on

QUESTION :

Is it possible to retrieve the list of shutdown timing (regardless if it is shut down by the computer or by the user) for a Windows OS XP and up via command prompt or software or anything?

For example, I open a command prompt then type shutdowntiming, it will list all the timing whereby the computer is either being power off / shut down by the user or by the computer itself and display something like the following:

=============================================================
| Date           | Time                  |  Shut Down Type  |
=============================================================
| 01 Jan 2012    | 19:00:00              |  User            |
=============================================================
| 02 Jan 2012    | 19:11:14              |  Computer        |
=============================================================
| 03 Jan 2012    | 17:01:01              |  User            |
=============================================================

Windows server 2003 does offer a shutdown-tracker. I have not attempted to use this on XP, but the article does talk about workstation mode.

I hope this helps steer you in the right direction.
