If an event of apocalyptic proportions were to occur, which services would shut down first?

Let's say it's a virus, and 99% of humanity died. Thus, no one is going to work that day. What would happen first? How long would it take for the electricity to stop working? When would the internet shut off? What would happen to the gas lines?
Would the toilets still flush, or would the water pressure be thrown off?
I suppose my inverse question is: what would still work after a week? After a month?
