"Windows NT/2K does not come with a built-in command-line shutdown command. However, both the Windows NT 4 and Windows 2000 Resource Kits come with shutdown, a program that you can use to shutdown local and remote computers. PsShutdown is a clone of the Resource Kit shutdown tool, providing you the same options and ability to shutdown, and optionally reboot, local and remote Windows NT/2K systems.
InstallationJust copy PsShutdown onto your executable path, and type PsShutdown with command-line options defined below.
PsShutdown works on NT 4.0, and Win2K.
UsageYou can use PsShutdown to initiate a shutdown of the local or a remote computer, or to abort an imiment shutdown.
