Make sure that they are not part of the administrators.
Create a GPO and make the users part of the GPO.  This GPO, you can disable the shutdown button.
Thanks,

Prepare for your VMware VCP6-DCV exam.

Josh Coen and Jason Langer have prepared the latest edition of VCP study guide. Both authors have been working in the IT field for more than a decade, and both hold VMware certifications. This 163-page guide covers all 10 of the exam blueprint sections.

Okay.
Go to Active Directory Users and Computers
right click on the domain controller then click on the properties option
click on the group policy tab
click on the New button and call it something like Non-admin
then click on the properties tab
once this is created go to
user config
admin template start menu and taskbar
remove and prevent access to shutdown=enabled
make sure that the TS users are part of this group.
Thanks,
Kelly W.

The above are only valid if you don't have the Group Policy Management Console installed.

If you don't have it installed, then you really should.  Download it from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=0a6d4c24-8cbd-4b35-9272-dd3cbfc81887&displaylang=en

You would also right click on the OU and select properties, not the domain controller.

If there isn't any domain controller inst, is just under a group, is this a restriction for creating GPO?

They are for 2000 but it's the same for 2003.
