    At a cmd prompt type "shutdown /?" (without the quotes) and you will get a list of options.

    You could just make a batch file with the shutdown command in it and use windows scheduler to do it

    That doesn't make much sense to me

    You need a -s or -r or -a before the -m

    I wrote a proggie few months ago that can do this....
    http://shutdowntool.no-ip.org/ <- NEVER tested on a workgroup

    shut down up to 10 client pc on a domain. Read the readme. I think for a workgroup you 'll need to set the "allow this computer to be shutdown from the network" in the local security policy to "everyone"


    Greetz,
