How to prevent non admin users from shutting down a PC

We have an application on a PC that other people log into.
We need to prevent those users (non local administrative users) from shutting down the PC and therefore allowing the application to be always on. Thank you.

OS is XP Pro SP3 in a domain.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This would not stop them from shutting it off if they have access to the box or its power plug.

That solution was spot on! I realize they will be able to shut the system down if they can access the box or the power cord. Thank you for the wicked fast reply.
