Scripted shut down of ServiceManager processes

We've noticed that when the system is rebooted for patching, if the CPs/WPs are killed and not shutdown cleanly, we can have issues when the box restarts.

So, we are in the process of developing a script to stop all ServiceManager processes (CP/WPs) via the command line. This script would be executed upon shutdown of the Windows server to ensure that the ServiceManager processes get stopped cleanly in our clustered environment. 

I have a couple of questions around the usage of ucybsmcl.exe:

1) Given the above scenario which stop mode is recommended, Close/Shutdown/Abnormally? I am assume Abnormally would probably be exact what happens with the server is rebooted.

2) Do we need to be sensitive to order in which we shutdown the CPs and WPs (PWP, DWP, JWP, WP*)?

Any guidance here would be greatly appreciated.
