Removing The Prompt Everytime I Close Ez Builder

I have an ebbed computer running Windows 8, that has to shut down gracefully when the power is switched off.

I have a script written but EZ Builder won't allow a shutdown unless you click
" No " . Which is a problem with no keyboard, monitor etc.

Tried to Google it but am having no luck.

You could try using autohotkey to have a script which presses the no button, but I have had limited success using it on Windows 8.1 (works great on my Windows 7 machine).

There are probably other solutions.

Of course the trick is having Windows not shut down whatever you are using to generate the key press before it shuts down ARC.

I am not aware of a way to disable the dialog in ARC.

Have you thought about just having the computer sleep instead of shut down?

Thanks Alan, hibernation mode works but I need the computer to power down.
Apparently you can use the " Local Group Policy Editor to turn off automatic termination of applications that block or cancel shutdown policy settings "
, but for the life of me I can't seem to find it on my computer.
Can't find Local Group Policy Editor. or the setting in it.

Group Policy Editor can be fond by opening a command prompt (probably want to do as admin) and typing gpedit [enter]

Thanks guys I figured it out, just had to split the instructions on separate lines. Force ARC to close and then shutdown.

os.system("shutdown.exe /f")
os.system("shutdown.exe /p")
