Along similar lines to S2U2, I've decided to make Slide2Shutdown! There's nothing special to configure, just install it and go. All resolutions should work fine (make sure you download QVGA for QVGA or WQVGA devices), but I only have the ability to test it on a VGA device so I can't guarantee how well it works in other resolutions. It also supports both portrait and landscape seamlessly.



There are four CABs available to install. They require version 3.5 of the .NET Compact Framework, the program won't run without it.
Slide2ShutdownSetup_v1.1.CAB just installs the application without mapping it to the power key. QVGA/WQVGA version.
Slide2ShutdownPowerKeySetup_v1.1.CAB installs the application, and maps it to the power key so that it will automatically launch when you hold down the power key. QVGA/WQVGA version.

There's no elaborate skinning method built-in, but the graphics are all stored in the \gfx\ folder and you can change them at will. Just replace the BMP files with your own files of the same dimensions.

Multiple language support is now available. You will find the available languages in the \lang\ folder. To enable your chosen language, open the txt file and change the first line to say "1" instead of "0".
Languages available:It should be pretty straightforward to create your own languages. Create a file called "lang.yourlanguage.txt". Make the first line 0. The second, third and fourth lines should be "slide to shutdown", "restart" and "sleep" respectively, and the last line should be the text for the cancel button. Please post your language file if you translate it, and I'll add it to the next version!

Changelog:
v1.1, 31/08/2009:
  • FIXED: HTC devices should shutdown properly now. HUGE thank you to DaveShaw for helping me with this. I don't think Omnia devices will though. Please send me a PM if you know how to rectify this.
  • ADDED: Support for multiple languages. French and German (thanks basthet!) included. See above for information on enabling this.
v1.0, 30/08/2009:
  • Initial release
  • BUG: Shutdown slider doesn't currently work well on many HTC phones (it only suspends), I'm looking into a fix.

QVGA/WQVGA would be nice.
I'd like to have this mapped to my power key on my Omnia...
cheers.

Nice Idea.
Wating for QVGA.

Suggestion:
1.At top:Center text:"Slide2Shut".
2.Move the three slide to centre.
3.Add some background.
4.Full Screen.

Very useful application!

It works well in Touch HD, except the bug you already mentioned.


I would like to ask you to add 'slide to screen off'.


Thank you!

Good news! It turns out that it was easier to add QVGA and WQVGA support than I thought it would be. I just added QVGA cabs to the first post, let me know if you have any problems since I can only test on emulators and not real devices.

Very nice! I'm especially fond of the dimmed background.
