With my slightly biased hat on, Shutdownertron - decentralised, group policy directed shutdowns with user abort.
Hi am looking for a script or software which would allow me to schedule remote shutdown on our network computers (Student machines in classroom).
I have tried puting in a script in to GPO Startup script batch file but with no success.
AT 18.00 SHUTDOWN -S -F -T 60 -C "This machine will shut down in 60 seconds please save all your work"
another vote for shutdownertron (y). It's gonna be easier in the long run
If you setup a FOG server to ease deployment of images an extra bolt on you can set is that after a set time (here we use 16:00) if nobody has been logged in for 15 mins the machines shutdown - this stops staff moaning that they where working late and you have shutdown there computers!
another vote for shutdownertron also..
im looking forward to the new version too ;p
Thanks for that guys.
Installed the sanpin to Group Policy.
But not filtering onto client machines. Am i missing something is there a client install or should it be pushed through GP
What's a sanpin??
Sorry guys that was snapin.
What i meant was installed the template into the gp snapin.
But this is not having any effect on the client machine.

Hiya where is the client msi file.
Unable to find it any where
You already used it to install the server component...
Going to throw my hat in here too for Shutdownertron ... works very well for us
Hi i might be a bit dim here.
Installed shutdown on server 2008r2 so added it to group policy and enabled desired settings.
This did not work on my client machines.
Do i have to push client software to the client machine for this to work?
