Built-in Temperature detection and auto-power off for IBM X-series & HP Proliant

E-450 had ambient temperature reading in its "prtdiag -v", thus
I can write a script to shutdown this server when the DC room
temperature reaches a certain degree.

I've checked that this reading is quite close to the actual room
temperature reading.

Does Windows has similar feature built into it, specifically IBM X-series
and HP Proliant models?

Is there any freeware that could power off (just like Unix "init 5" for
Windows) : note that this is "power off" and not just shut down the
OS.  I need actual power off so that it doesn't generate more heat

I think there is the lights out management/BMC, or similar hardware monitoring options using IPMI queries.
using IPMI you can monitor hardware status of Fans, Power supply, temperatures etc..

If you use this shutdown utility, it actually powers off the machine: http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/shutcut.php
