Shutdown Procedures

A shutdown procedure performs any last-minute tasks required to put a device driver (or, in rare cases, an application) in a stable state before the computer restarts or
shuts down.

Applications can usually perform housekeeping tasks before they quit. If your application requires that some action be taken after it quits, such as having the system display a dialog box, you should use a system extension whenever possible. ·
