    Shutdown all PC's at 7PM

    Hi guys, do many of you use a script / program to shutdown PC's in the evening? if so, what program / script do you use? as i need to impliment this, but either shutdown commands, or psshutdown might take a while to impliment, and was wondering if there is anything (free) that is quicker and easier.

    Many Thanks in advance

    Ben.

    Scheduled task configured via Group Policy Preferences.

    You have the option to delay the task if someone's using the machine as well.

    add a start up script to add a scheduled task, copy the following text into notepad and save as shutdown.bat

    REM Create a task for this computer to shut itself down at 7pm
    schtasks /create /sc daily /st 19:00:00 /tn "Shutdown at 1900" /tr "shutdown -s -t 120 -c \"This computer is scheduled to automatically shutdown at this time. You have 2 minutes to save all your work and logoff.\"" /ru system

    Shutdownertron also works very well with Windows 7.

    Got a schedule in impero for it to both shutdown and wake up at set times

    Used to do it using spec ops remote admin, and before that with a script.


    Impero's so wonderful
