    Software Recommendations

    Something simular to Shutdownertron that works on Server 2003 and XP machines as we are looking to make machines shut down at say 7pm if they are left on! If it has extras thats a good thing, but something simple for now and not a massive cost!)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    DJ.

    Looks ok, but we need something with a GUI so we can disable it if needs be!

    Um... Shutdownertron? It's a give-away, I don't charge for it (though donations are always nice).

    Fair enough I'm not aware of any other software that works in the decentralised way that Shutdownertron does; usually it involves a server calling each machine individually at the time of payload, or an agent that has to be configured per-machine. Shutdownertron takes central policy settings, but runs its payload locally.
