Hi there, I am sick of trawling the internet to no avail trying to find a decent bit of software to automate PC shutdown on an evening and was wondering if anyone has some good suggestions for some software i could try.
If's XP machines you want to shutdown then you can use the inbuilt shutdown command and do it against remote machines.
In our new ICT rooms, we have had big red buttons installed at the door, which kills all power to the room. lol, seriously.
Impero allows you to shutdown pc's remotely, I believe you can automate it, but to be honest I enjoy shutting them all off myself remotely knowing that it's been done.
Wish the monitors were automated too, pain in the ass
PSShutdown works fine here. It works fine. Pity about the rest of network management tools!

I use beyondexec as it allows me to shutdown computers not logged on early in the afternoon, then all computers in the evening.
We use the System Shutdown msi posted

Easy enough to send it to any/all machines through group policy.
I just run a batch file.
Just replace the \\ol** with the computer names.Code:shutdown -s -t 0 -m \\ol01 shutdown -s -t 0 -m \\ol02 shutdown -s -t 0 -m \\ol03 shutdown -s -t 0 -m \\ol04 shutdown -s -t 0 -m \\ol05 shutdown -s -t 0 -m \\ol06 shutdown -s -t 0 -m \\ol07 shutdown -s -t 0 -m \\ol08 shutdown -s -t 0 -m \\ol10
The only problem with this script is the time it takes to work out a computer is already shutdown. I'm sure I could put some logic into it to ping the machines first.
