How to remotely shutdown the PC from my computer?
« on: October 02, 2013, 06:07:34 PM »
I have two systems one in my home network and I have to use both, is it possible to do remote shutdown from one PC to another cause sometimes I do forget to switch off the machine in the other room which ends up in big problem the next day by using up the power as well it gets heated up. I want to know how to remotely shutdown a PC from another PC? What are the things to carry out for doing it?

Doing a remote shutdown is possible by following  few important steps which as follows,

STEP 1: Right click my computer, choose manage.

STEP 2: Highlight the Computer Management (Local) then click on Action, choose connect to another computer. ( In Windows 7 -> All Tasks -> Connect to another computer.

STEP 3: In the window that opens fill in the machine name of the PC you want to connect to and click ok.

STEP 4: Once connected right click on Computer Management (Remote machine name) and choose properties.

STEP 5: Go to the "Advanced" tab and click the Settings button under Start up and recovery.

STEP 6: Click on the Shutdown button.
The second way which is more likely the easiest thing to do is to open up a command prompt and enter in the following:

%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -r -m \\<machinename>. In this way you can shutdown the machine remotely. If you are looking for some third party application which will help for remote connection then www.teamviewer.com is the best!s the best!
