hardware interrupt to shut down
As im making a console app to protect my comp ,against nosey-parkers who want to fiddle with my comp while im gone, i was thinking that there has to be some hardware interrupt that can be called from in the app wich will shut down the laptop.
I believe this can be possible because if i go to start and shut down windows the comp shuts down everything.... you know you dont have to press the "on/Of" button to completely shut down the laptop.
Therefor i really think there has to be some hardware interrupt that can do the same thing when a person types in the wrong password (after 3 times of course).
I was wondering if such an interrupt is specific to the comp or to the OS, i think the OS ( win 98 Se).
If anyone got a link to some usefull info bout that i would appreciate it if they shared it with me :D.
Thx in advance
