    How do you Shut your PC's down?

    I have just been wondering how people shut the computers on site down?

    We currently use Ranger to shut down the staff and student PC's but we are looking at leaving Ranger off staff computers when we move to Windows 7, so I was wondering what people use to shut computer down?

    Thanks

    Scheduled task to run the shutdown command. Nice and simple.

    Same, deliver the task via GPPs and you're set.

    We use GPUpdate by Specops. When we got our license it was fairly cheap. Good all round program and has lots of other little features which are quite nice.

    Yes we run it via the GPPs currently for a select few computers so that might be what we will do with the new ones.
