Is there a way to use a group policy to tell computers to shutdown at a set time?  Maybe by creating a scheduled task?  I am using 2003 server with 2000 and XP stations.

schtasks /create /ru system /sc daily /st 22:00:00 /tn PowerDown /tr "shutdown -s -f -t 30"

should do it...

if you need to generate the task on 'all' systems, use this against a list of computers:

for /f %%a in (c:\computers.txt) do schtasks /create /s %%a /ru system /sc daily /st 22:00:00 /tn PowerDown /tr "shutdown -s -f -t 30"
