How can I restart my remote PC?

Hi, I 'm on Windows 7 home and the PC I use remote desktop into is windows 7 Enterprise.  
I click on the Windows logo on the bottom left but it only has logoff or disconnect options.  How can I restart the PC remotely?  And can I be able to remote into that PC after it restart?  Thanks.

If the login you are using has full admin privileges on the remote Windows 7 Enterprise computer, you should be able to open a command prompt on the remote machine with elevated (a.k.a. admin) rights and execute a shutdown /r command.

If you are remoted into the computer, go to Starr then type in: cmd

Then click your Enter key on your keyboard.

Type in the Command window:

shutdown -r -f

Click the Enter key on the keyboard. The remote system will be rebooted.

Yes, I have full admin on that pc.  So, shutdown /r command would restart the PC remotely?  Once it starts, would I be able to log in remotely again?  Thanks.

If you want to reboot the remote comnputer from your local computer, type in this command in a Command line window:

shutdown -r -f -m \\remote_computer_name

Yobri, that remote command is normally an excellent choice, but since he is using Windows 7 Home those machines aren't on a domain together and it seems rather unlikely that the workgroup is configured to allow remote shutdown to work properly.

Right, if it is not configured properly for his workgroup then it wouldn't be a viable option.
