Re: How To Shut Down The Other 4 Pc's From One Main PC
If you are sure of the time in all cases, then set a task event for 2100 each day with the task scheduler that will shut the machines down. There are several small utilities on the web that will shut the machine down gracefully. Set the task scheduler up to run one of them at 2100 every day.
Using Windows 7 Task Scheduler - Run Programs At Specific Time or Day
These utilities also allow setting the time of shutdown so they don't have to use the scheduler:
Auto Shutdown - Free download and software reviews - CNET Download.com
Free Shutdown Utilities Freeware downloads and reviews from SnapFiles
Wise Auto Shutdown - Free Windows PC shutdown tool - log off, shut down and sleep your Windows PC.
Free Shutdown Tools Downloads - Freeware Files.com
As a second possibility, if they are all on the same LAN, enable remote desktop on all of them and just shut them down individually.
The preceeding is uncalled for, unnecessary, probably illegal, and certainly inexcusable, but it's my story and I'm sticking to it!
