Add windows command line option to gracefully shutdown qbittorrent.

Why ?

in short
Qbittorrent will not reconnect after vpn disconnect and reconnect because the network interface gets assigned a different IP when it comes back up.
This seems to be a issue with libtorrent that still continues to listen to the old one.
When you restart qbt to torrents reconnect without any issues.

With a option to gracefully shutdown qbittorrent,
we could shutdown qbt when the vpn disconnect and when it comes up we could start qbittorrent.
this would be a temporary fix till the issue gets solved.
but looking at the date of the issue it won't be fixed soon or at all

uTorrent handles this pretty well when the VPN comes backup
