I think you can use Windows remote shutdown tool. Go to Start> Run> Type in "command"> Type in "shutdown." This will bring up a list of switches you can use with this tool like naming what remote computer you want to shut down, killing all processes without warning, etc. It will also work to shut down the local machine. If this is really what you want to do then you can play around with it and figure out which switches you would want to use and just create a shortcut with that command line in it. I offer this up in ignorance so don't blame me if you mess something up real bad, deal?
