    There is no English standard meaning for "cold shutdown" or "warm shutdown" or "hot shutdown". They are defined by each company that uses them.

    You are talking about Windows PCs: shut-downs of Windows. So these would be meanings defined by Microsoft, and only apply to PCs running Windows.

    Thank you all !!!

    It seems "cold shutdown" & "warm shutdown" don't always have the same meanings, depending on the context and who does the interpretation.
