    Turning PC's on and off

    Hi

    Is there a good free program that I can use to turn PC's on and off ?

    Also is there some way that I can disable students from logging onto staff PC's ?

    :-)

    Here is some info around the wake-on-lan future http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wake-on-LAN

    When it comes to remotely shutting down computers look into the 'shutdown' command.

    we use Poweroff its free just google poweroff.exe

    you could write a VB script to check the users group membership and if they arent staff force a logoff..loopback meger in GPO in the computer ou or better.. get the script to check the machien name. and apply the script to students users ou
