Hi,

The simplest way is to create a PowerShell script and deploy that, so it creates a scheduled task. You have to decide if you want to brute force power off if the machine is logged on still, but other than that it's fairly straight-forward.

As far as I know there's no native way, using Power Management although that would be very nice!

For even more control you can use the script together Compliance (DCM) which offers reports of machines that do no comply, but otherwise you can use deployment reporting to monitor delivery of the script.

As far reporting which machines actually power off, I think that would be best done as another function in the script.

There were no other answers and that is the only way that I know of; others require 3rd party tools which is not a good step if you can do something natively.
