Windows Question...

Yes. There is a Windows API that you can call. If I remember correctly, 
there is also an assembler instruction that when executed would force a 
reboot or shutdown. In any case, I used to install an icon on my wife's 
computer to reboot or shutdown.

mouse but when program is done executing.
