    Alerting for when a computer is shut down/rebooted

    Rookie

      I'm trying to create an alert that sends me an email when a computer is shut down or rebooted. I am having a tough time figuring out which alert to select to track this.

       

      I've gone into the Alerting and created a new ruleset, set the action to email me at any time. I'm currently testing with the following alerts in place:

       

      Windows Service Monitor - monitoring the following services: Power, Workstation, Event Log.

       

      Polling every one minute.

       

      If someone could point me in the right direction, or let me know what exactly I need to monitor so that I can get an email notification when a computer is shut down, I'd appreciate it!

       

      Using LANDesk Management Console 9.6.

      Update:

      I tried monitoring a service (the Print Spooler service) and tested it out. When I manually stop/start the service, I get an email. I do not get an email when the computer is shutting down or restarting.

       

      What am I doing wrong?

       

      Thanks,

      Kevin
