shutdown script does not run with remote shutdown

We have a shutdown script which runs fine when the user turns off the computer manually. The script does also run when a user is logged on to a computer and a remote shutdown command is sent to the computer. The script doesn't run when nobody is logged on to the computer and a remote shutdown is sendto the computer. Can anybody explain this behavior?

What you are seeing is exactly what one would expect on an M$ OS.  Someone has to be logged into the computer, in order for the OS to run a script.  i.e scripting needs to be run by a user.  If you want to get around this, you can either run the script as a SERVICE -- which means the OS itself is the "owner" and runner of the script, log a person logged in.  The other way is to use a Task Scheduler which is also a SYSTEM service, and it can run scripts without a user being logged in.
