http://php.net/manual/en/function.exec.php , but the user running IIS on server should have right to execute the shutdown command and in php.ini must be the EXEC function allowed

You can try the code below.
I tested it on my WampServer, it works.

<?php
$cmd3 = 'shutdown -s';
system($cmd3);
?>

Open in new window
