How to Shutdown
Ever notice how there's like four or five ways to do the same thing?
I posted about my Remote Web Workplace experience and wanted to know if there was a way to remotely shut down. Matt posted in the comments "shutdown.exe" but there's a couple more.
Handy Andy said Start> run> “shutdown -r“
For one, once I have that Control-Alt-End which is the remote desktop equivalent of Control-Alt-Delete [the infamous three fingered salute -- no relationship to David just happen to share the same name]...bingo, I have a button there that says "shutdown".
Then Chad and Marina said, click on Start and Windows Security and sure 'nuff in a RDP session, Windows Security...which is the shortcut to the screen that gives you task manager, shut down, log off, etc. is right there. [Which is of course the same solution pointed out to me by Dave in the post that started this whole exercise in the first place -- that once you RDP into a session either via RWW or onto a server, that the Windows Security shortcut is right there, just a mouse click away]
