    None.  Why wouldn't they just do it from the start menu?

    The command "shutdown" with the "i" parameter for the GUI

    Example (for a command prompt):

    shutdown /i

    You can use the Local Security Policy editor to grant the user permission to do this:
    Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment -> Shut Down the system

    You could also use a GPO if the server is on a domain.

    Accepted Solution

    Create a GPO and define the setting in that GPO (CompConf\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignments\Shutdown the system). Then link the GPO to the OUs you have the servers in. Make sure you group the servers you want people to be
    able to shut down in separate OUs.

    Then change the applies to section of the GPO to the users or groups that you want to have this access.
