See this article http://lowendmac.com/ed/rosen/08ar/leopard-remote-control.html where it says:

Mac OS X Server Admin

As a final option, system administrators running the Leopard version of Apple's Server Admin application can take advantage of Apple's built-in screen sharing (ARD/VNC) direct from Server Admin.app - just choose Share Screen from the File menu when connected to a remote server. I typically use VNC alongside the Server Admin app for this purpose, but it's always nice to have multiple options.

That won't work, a Windows solution is needed.

Easiest way is to enable ssh on the server, system prefs, sharing, remote login.

Download putty for your Windows machine. This will allow you to ssh user@yourserver.domain and issue terminal commands.

You could simply use ssh and the shutdown command on any mac system, server or workstation.  To see the full command and its syntax, open the terminal and enter the following without quotes "man shutdown"

VIA SSH, you can use something like PuTTY on a Windows system.

sudo shutdown -h now

to shutdown

or

sudo shutdown -r now

to restart
