Good afternoon

The short answer is yes you can login to your computer using cached credentials if the domain is shut down.

The Long answer is

first thing you should do is :
 a)restart your computer
 b)login as local admin
        1)if you do not know the local admistrator password
              i) login as domain admin
              ii) change the local administrator password to something you know
              iii) restart computer
              iv) login as local admin
 c)copy your network profile to a backup location.
 d) Create a local user account for use after the domain is shutdown.
 e) Logoff as the local administrator and logon as new local user user (to create profile directory)
 f) restart computer
          1)these restart clear the files open status so that you can
              copy and delete them. So yes verginia restart when I say restart.
 g)Logon as the local administrator
 h)Copy your domain account's profile the the local user account's folder you just created when you logged in, in  step e
 i) login as the new local user account you created in step d.

Oh, ... one more question what OS is on your computer that you want to continue using?
