    Uh, Brink? my computer takes a bit of time to shut down and plays the sound after 1 second. Is there a way to make the sound play earlier?
    It's normal for it to take a little bit before shut down to actually happen as Windows prepares for it.

    If you have hibernate enabled, it will take a bit of time for everything to be saved before shut down.

    If you have a hung app or process at shut down, you will see a End Task dialog waiting on you to choose an action before it automatically does.

    Download: Play_a_Sound_at_Shutdown.bat

    @Brink, according to your tutorial, I have written the above batch file, which will create a scheduled task of playing a sound at shutdown. Users only have to enter (1) the path of the .wav file and (2) the account's password as shown below.

    Would you consider adding it into the tutorial? The following script will delete the scheduled task.

    @Brink
    Could you modify the bat files and include in the other tutorials for playing sounds on sign-in and sign-out as well? Would this bat file work for modifying the startup sound or is resource modification still needed?
    Thanks!

    Hello,

    This is Matthew's .bat file, so I will leave it to him if he would like to modify a version for the other sounds.

    Correct. The startup sound would require resource modification.

    Do you mean the following tutorials?
    Play Sound at Logon (Sign-in) in Windows 10
    Play Sound at Logoff (Sign-out) in Windows 10

    Correct. As well as:
    Play Sound when Unlock Computer in Windows
    Play Sound when Lock Computer in Windows

    I forgot the latter two as well.

    Thanks!

    Thank you for updating the other tutorials.

    I am not a coder and don't know much about writing batch files. Do you recommend any good websites and/or resources from learning to write simple batch files for beginners?

    Thanks!
