Checking if PCs are shut down should be easy enough, i'd use Angry IP Scanner (http://angryziber.com) and scan the network range the PCs are on, any that don't reply are shut down (assuming the PCs don't have a firewall that is blocking pings). Is that what you want to do?

Hi,

Are all these machines Windows-Based machines? If so then you can enable event logs on them and then using GFI Eventlog Manager you can log any activity that they are performing.

Alternatively, you can use AdvancedRemoteInfo;
