Eco-Warriors R'us - Shutting down equipment
I 'm a tech support guy for a number of schools in Surrey.
One Infant school in particular were 'helpfully' branded recently as having poor energy efficiency. I'm desperate to help them loose this label by drawing up a plan of action to shut down IT equipment overnight / during holidays...
1. Can Cachepilot be shutdown remotely (without having to switch it off on the back, or via the web interface); ie. can I shut it down via a shell script?? If so, any suggestions?
2. I want to write a shutdown script on their MS Server (2k3), that will detect if anyone is connected to it, or using any of its resources, and if not then shutdown. Any ideas on best way to do this - I do have some ideas, but don't want to reinvent the wheel.
