Shutdown from command line

Postby CutterKin » Sun Jun 18, 2017 7:34 pm

Is there any way to tell Intelliremote to shutdown from the command line? I have tried sending it WM_CLOSE but it didn't work. I am currently force/killing it with a process killer utility but would prefer a more graceful solution if there is one.

I'd really appreciate an answer to this, even if the answer is "it's not possible"...

Thanks!

You mean kill Intelliremote itself? Like stop the app? Looks like this will do it...

That is how I am doing it now; it just doesn't feel like the best way. When forcefully killed like that, it leaves behind a "ghost" icon in the tray that doesn't disappear until the mouse cursor rolls over it or another program puts an icon in the same spot. I guess it just doesn't seem like a clean shutdown so I worry that it also may be leaving behind some used memory or an open process or something. That being said, after using Intelliremote for a few weeks now and shutting it down this way I have not seen it cause any problem other than that ghost icon, so I will continue. Thank you for the response!
