    Create a shortcut / type in cmd (run as admin)
    C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 120
    Where
    /s means shutdown
    /t is the time in seconds
    120 is my set time for 120 seconds

    Another method is remote desktop administration. There are a few ways to set it up, which basically opens a window that provides a streaming look on what your remote desktop is doing (via the interwebz), and lets you control it's keyboard/mouse.

    Wasn't aware rda was available in non server versions of windows. You are sure you don't mean VNC (which can indeed shutdown as it is "nothing more" then a stream of the desktop)?

    RDA is available in Pro and Ultimate versions of Windows (since 2000) but I don't recall how to set it up within Windows itself. There are a number of applications that can do it for you though.

    VNC is newer than the last time I've had to deal with remote administration, so I don't know any details about it at all.
