Active Directory, go to User, Administrative Templates, Start Menu and Taskbar, Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down command (enable)

The change will limit a non-administrative user.
Usually, that is the default behavior for a non-administrative user.

If there is an active remote shutdown on your computer.  IE it says "This computer will be shut down in X seconds, please save your work" etc.  You can cancel it by going into DOS (Start, Run, CMD) and then typing "Shutdown -a" without the quotes.  Hope this helps.
