How do you shutdown your Windows 7 computers?
I am looking at ways to shutdown my Windows 7 computers. I have a nice batch file that will close down my machines.
I but i am having trouble setting up the scheduled task. In Windows 7 group policy preferences for some reason when i create the task and specify credentials it doesn't create on the machines.
running the SCHTASKS commands on Windows 7 machines doesnt seem to work.
How do you do it please?

we have fog and the fog service does it
you could make a batch script which exports the list of computers from ad using csvde and then use shutdown command reading comp names from the text file.

Group Policy Preference - Scheduled Task. Works a treat
Post up your settings and lets take a look

This is the problem i am getting. The Microsoft solution is no good TBH - User GPP Scheduled Task item fails to apply and logs event id: 4098 with 0x80070005 "Access is denied."

We used both FOG 0.30 and GP to do it.
Just FOG now its just a simple tick and time and done.

We got the same problem the tasks simply will not run as it says that the account doesnt have rights even though i have used the domain network account. I had heard that its a fault in group policy but we use Lan View to manually shut them down or i have got a bat file that will install the schedule task remotely and shut down yhe machine at said time.

I shut them down frOm the server. Run shutdown twice, once to wake them from standby and once to shut them down.

- Rep Power
Same here, scheduled to shut down at 6pm every day, though we change it whenever we have Open evenings etc. Works really well.
