Question regarding its Shutdown/Restart Actions

Is it better at working properly than the Shutdown.exe that Windows provides? I have noticed that running Shutdown.exe via the command line will sometimes not work right away when I use the parameters that shutdown/restart immediately (which Is why I am asking that question).

Re: Question regarding its Shutdown/Restart Actions

Shutter uses official Windows API mechanisms to trigger shutdown and reboot operations, namely ExitWindowsEx function.

My guess is that both tools should work equally good.

The delay before the shutdown may be caused by other applications responding to the pre-shutdown message, e.g. saving settings. Applications are given a limited amount of time to respond. If they don't make it in time - they might get terminated forcefully.
