"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This command can be used on the local computer, such as in a scheduled task
Shutdown /s /t 3 /d p:0:0

Open in new window

To run it on a remote computer use
Shutdown /s /t 3 /d p:0:0 /m \\Computername

Open in new window

If you have a large list you can use a simple batch script to loop through them, or simply load the remote shutdown GUI using:
Shutdown /i

Open in new window

The above command will load a simple GUI where you can enter all the names of the computers you want to shut down and let you set all appropriate options for them, and then let you execute the shutdowns.
