Changing user's passwords by using Windows Environment Variables

I have a lot of HP Thin clients with windows embedded and I need to change their passwords to match the %ComputerName% however the password needs to be in lowercase.  At this point my script consists of:
net user %COMPUTERNAME% %COMPUTERNAME%
This works to set the password correctly except it's in all uppercase.  Is there a way to do this through the command line or do I need to write a vbs script?  Thanks.

Yes it probably would be easier... not sure where to start with the vbscript ideas?

What do you currently use to set the password?
Do you have a script that connects to each thinclient and issues the net user command?

You are setting local user/password to match the computer name.
The links posted include an example for a batch script that would go character by character and convert it to lower case.

Currently we have the passwords set one way and now we are changing the standard so they all need to be chnaged.  I am trying to craft a script to connect to each thin client and set it using the net user command.
I tried using http://fixunix.com/ms-dos/271008-batch-code-convert-lowercase-file-uppercase-vice-versa.html but can't figure out how to change it to make everything lower from upper.
