Power loss does not create event 6008 in logs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows XP does not log an event 6008 after power loss. We are trying to identify when a system has had an unexpected shutdown. We can not use the Shutdown Event Tracker because the system can not be paused during the boot phase after the power is restored. We can only look to see if the eventlog service was not stopped between starts. Does anyone know how to make it log 6008 or a WMI query that does the logic?
