Needing to be able to shutdown certain computers from one location using existing Microsoft technology

We are needing to be able to shutdown certain computers from one console. Using Windows server 2003, workstations are XP variations. It there some scripting functions or utility which doesn't cost available for this? Built in windows facilities? A central software console for this would be nice, however it appears that will not likely be a reality.

You can use the shutdown command in the command line. This could also be used in a batch file quickly run later. To see the available switches, type "shutdown /?" in the command prompt. It also has an available GUI if you type "shutdown -i" You can use this on the local pc or remote pcs.
