I'd suggest moving the if block a bit down in the code, at least behind 
the manual start check, so plugins cannot interfere with this. I think 
it should be ok to move it down right before the "ForceShutdown = 
false;" line - thats the point where the "Press any key to cancel 
shutdown" will be asked for sure.

SHUTDOWNRETRY defaults to 5 minutes, thats ok, though I would go for 
something around 1 minute.
