Notification of connected users before shutdown ?

Posted: 01-23-2009, 12:14 AM
We are generating some frustration in the office when users shutdown their
PC while other users may be sharing files or resources on the computer being
shut down. Older versions of Windows warned the users, prior to shutdown,
that other users were connected. This allowed the user to warn other users
that they needed to shutdown or opt to shutdown later. Windows Vista
apparently does not provide this courtesy by default.

Does anyone know how we can restore that setting so that Windows will warn
us before shutdown that other users are connected to our computer and allow
us to decide whether to abort the shutdown or not?
