oh yeah, I forgot about that :)

it can work on windows too if you create a simple .BAT file to call the
appropriate shutdown.exe command and arguments. They differ for different
windows versions. Drop the .bat file into c:\program
files\slimserver\server\scripts\ and the plugin should allow you to select it
through the player interface, and you can then press plan to execute it
immediately.
