Lock Down Windows 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services

I need to lock down some OS functions like Shutdown/Restart, RUN command for all RDS sessions, except Domain Administrator. Would this possible? I understand if I use GPO, it will apply to all logon users. Thanks.

Use the GPO but set the settings under "User Configuration" and don't apply it to the OU's containing the domain admins. This would require that the Admins are in another OU which can be particularity useful for situations like this where admins require different settings than regular users
