Auto shutdown Windows after multiple failed login attempts

12 Jul 2017, 05:38

Hi,

I want Windows to auto shutdown into hibernation mode (not energy saving) after a specified amount of failed login attempts.

I thought I could do it with task scheduler and was looking for the Windows Even ID to trigger a shutdown command.
So I searched my logs and also EventID.net but the closest thing I could find was Event ID 529 (http://www.eventid.net/display-eventid- ... hase-1.htm).
Description:
Logon Failure:
Reason: Unknown user name or bad password.
User Name: <user name>
Domain: <domain name>
Logon Type: <logon type>
Logon Process: <process name>
Authentication Package: <package name>
Workstation Name: <computer name>
There seems to be no unique ID for the third failed attempt. But now I am wondering how does that trigger work then!? (https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/29395/t ... -password/)

Code: Select all

net accounts /lockoutthreshold:3
net accounts /lockoutduration:30
net accounts /lockoutwindow:30
Maybe Autohotkey is the solution? :?
