psshutdown timeout too long

Hi,

I currently run the batch script:
start c:\psshutdown.exe -s -t 03 -f @ws.txt

WS.txt is simply a list of every computer name of the 140 odd workstations in this site. Now, I have tested this out and it works fantastic, but the problem is it takes up to an hour just to shutdown a 20 workstation computer lab. All workstations are WinXP SP2.

Is there a way to make psshutdown work faster instead of taking 2-3mins to timeout if it can't find if a machine?

The -t paramater can be used, and it defaults to 20 seconds, set it to less.  You can use the -n also to keep from waiting forever for computers that don't respond.
