    Shutdown cmd options

    Hi I have tried searching and not found any answer, I may not have searched hard enough but please can some one answer this?

    Is there a method of altering what the shutdown and restart options do in Frodoplayer? The reason I ask is that I use a laptop with FP and use Multires to alter screen resolutions between users. I use 800x600 for FP user and 1024x768 for my main user at home. My options are to switch users for incar and at home but I want to add a command to switch resolution back to 1024x768 before leaving the FP user so the desktop isn't messed up when switching back to my main user.

    There may be a better way to do this but I'd like to stay away from shutdown launchers to save on the amount of services running.

    Any better ideas welcome or help on Adding command options to FP shutdown or Restart

    yes you can..
    You can make hardware profiles.. (config panel - system)
    choose hardware - Hardware profiles.
    add your current..

    make settings again (new profile) and add again.
    reboot and see and option menu at starting up windows.

    we use it @work for config. laptops.. only with docking a possible network connection. profile standalone enables the modem.

    I don't remember if I added it to take 3, but take 4 will allow you to run a program
    on exit.
    This, along with the ScreenRes program on my website, will accomplish exactly what you
    need.

    Hi Kingplaza

    I looked at hw profiles but its in the OS and MS's lack of functionality within the OS I'm tring to get around. I'm too lazy to press the extra button at the start, Its the fully automated not having to think about it solution I was after, Thanks

    Thanks Frodo that is cool I look forward to 4's release. Thats exactly what I'm after

    Well slarty, you could always put screenres in your startup folder for each user with the proper settings.

    I gave it a go but the problem is I need to change resolution when logging out of the users profile too. I can do this in a batch file but I'm going to wait for 4 because I want if at all possible for FP to handle the log out or shutdown of the this profile.

    If I log out before changing resolution the logon screen is @ 800x600 and the icons on the next profile are messed up prior to the starup folder applications being launched.

    simple problem but annoying
