Yeah, I'm sure people would love to load up a skin only to have it shut down their computer.

Anyway, no it’s not possible and it NEVER will be. Allowing a skin to access or run any file is a major security risk.

Can always right a simple component to do this, probably only take about 5 minutes to add it to the basic component example. Bundle the component with your skin, hook up a button, and presto... you're everybody's worst nightmare!
