Shutdown or Restart or Hibernate the Computer Using C#

The easiest way to shutdown, restart, or hibernate a computer programmatically using C# is to use the shutdown command-line tool that comes with Windows. This tool has a lot of options, For example:
  • /l log off of the user
  • /s shuts down the computer
  • /r restarts the computer, and
  • /h hibernates the computer.
To get the full list of available options, type help shutdown in the Command Prompt. To execute shutdown from C# use the follow statement:
//the first parameter is the command, and the second is its arguments  
System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("shutdown", "/s");
