    Alerting for when a computer is shut down/rebooted


      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.




      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?
