I just have ended up in a situation where I have lots of noisy computers in my office that I want to be able to shut down remotely in an automated way.
I'm currently not running using a domain but a workgroup and I would prefer to keep it that way if possible.
When using the shutdown command line tool it says I
computername: Access is denied.(5)
How do I get the permission to do this? Is it possible to do without having a domain setup? I'm not very bothered about security for these particular computers so if a solution involves something that is generally considered bad security practise it's not problem.
