I know only the cygwin way, yet, but this doesn't matter.
Even a service can be manually started, if you define it as "manual" 
instead of "automatic" in the service-dialoge of Windows.

Set postmaster to "manual" and start it afterwards in a cmd-window with
NET START postmaster
NET STOP postmaster
to ... well ... stop it   ;)

I guess postmaster wouldn't be peed off even if you let it run into 
system shutdown since Windows will stop running services automatically.
