Thanks for the insight. There's a scheduled power outage at work next month, and with this I can make sure everybody's workstation is shut down properly without running around and looking at power lights.

Also Useful with PsExec from Sysinternals Suite
Glad you found it useful. While you can use it alone, it's also useful with tools like PsExec from the Sysinternals suite. I might do an episode about that particular command as well. That suite has so many tools but PsExec is the one I use the most.
You could probably create a batch file or Powershell script to go through a list of hostnames and have them reboot/shutdown remotely.
