    Shutting down stations at certain time????

    Hi

    I was wondering if it is possible to shut down stations by setting it all up on active directory?

    I have a windows 2003 server R2 and all stations are running windows XP Pro SP2. What i want is to set a timing in our ICT suite so that stations shut down automatically at 8.00pm. Is this possible on windows or do i ahev to buy software to do this?

    You can set up a sheduled task to accomplish this using something like beyondexec, or psshutdown both of which are free.

    you can create a batch file that says "shutdown -s -f -t 9 -m \\(computer name)
    the -f switch means force so any open programs wwill be forced to close
    the -t switch means the time before the shutdown process happans
    repeat this with all the computers in that room and schedual it to run at a set time.
