Stop Shutdown the PC by certain user group in the domain

I want to stop the shutdown option by certain user group in the domain while i need to allow by some users, I need to control this by group policy
1 Solution
Create an Organizational Unit(s) within active directory and assign users to groups where you have assigned the privilege or not. Once you create OU, you can right-click, properties and drill down to appropriate areas...
There are two group policy settings related to controlling the shutdown of the system, they are:

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\Allow system to be shut down without having to log on (set to disable)

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignments\Shut down the system (here you should have at least these three accounts - Administrator, SYSTEM and WIN\Domain Admins)

Note that these are computer, not user, gp's.

The problem with the last suggestion is that it does not prevent users from using the shutdown command.
Are you referring to a user shutting down their individual workstation or a server in a "remote desktop" session?
