Try something like this -

#include <dos.h>
void main (void){
    system("shutdown -s");

compile the above program and save it as .exe file. Now run this program (may be u need to run as admin) and in few seconds your windows operating system will shutdown.

Does Tomcat server support Graceful Shutdown (like all other App Servers: Weblogic, Websphere), where new requests are rejected, and the server finishes in-flight work on existing requests?

Something like the apachectl -k graceful, but instead to restart to stop the server.

How we can add two 64 bit number on 32 bit machine using c/c++ program ?

I am currently running RHEL 6.5 on a 64-bit laptop, and installed a new fedora 20 VM using the Virtual Machine Manager -- seemed to work fine, f20 came up, looks good, but now i want to shut it down, so from the f20 console, I selected "Virtual Machine" -> "Shut Down" -> "Shut Down".

Where it *looks* like the VM shuts down, but the VMM window shows "f20 Running"

Should I expect a different result? I was expecting the VMM window to show that that VM was Stopped or something.
