Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm not using this as a production server but rather as a development box, and not being able to shut the thing down without entering stuff into the reason box is annoying. Can I disable that behavior?

  1. Type gpedit.msc in RUN dialog box and press Enter.

  2. It'll open Group Policy Editor. Now go to:

    Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System

  3. In right-side pane, look for "Display Shutdown Event Tracker" option.
