    Shutting down PC's with scheduled task

    Hello,

    I followed this blog post Windows 7 shutdown through Group Policy Preferences - Blogs - EduGeek.net to create a scheduled task via Group Policy to shutdown PCs at 6PM. All works except for one issue, if the PC has been powered off manually before the task runs when the kids login the next morning the task runs and shuts the PC down! Is there a way I can set the task so that if it is missed it doesn't run again until its next scheduled to?

    The only option I can see in the task properties is "Run as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed" but this is un-ticked anyway.

    Thanks Dave

    Never mind guys, I have just done it the old fashioned way running a batch file from the server to remotely shutdown each PC. Admin Feel free to delete this thread.
