Shutdown any computer using Python in 4 lines of code - Python project simple

Today we will learn new python projects and tricks in which we will shut down a pc with 4 lines of code. 

To start  first we will create a new python file called

The code for the project >>

import os
def shutdown_PC():
   os.system("shutdown /s /t 1")


Let's understand the code:

  • import os

    • import os - It is preinstalled in python libraries. So you have no need to reinstall it using the pip command. It’s an operating system.

  • define shutdown pc

def shutdown_PC():

    os.system("shutdown /s /t 1")

# run this command  to shut down the system

  • shutdown_PC() # call this function

  • And finally, pc is shutdown using shutdown_PC()

To shut down your computer with python, ensure that you save and close all running files. make sure you have saved and closed all files except your code editor where you wrote the python program to shut down your system. As soon as your program starts running, your system will shut down in the next few seconds.

The final step is the output:

 (base) C:\Users\HP\Desktop\Projects>python


So this is how you can easily shut down your system by using the Python programming language. The OS module in Python is a very useful tool as it can be used in many more tasks that are completely dependent on your system’s operating system.
