Hi

We are trying to make a shutdown policy for our School with about 650 clients. We want to have a message to warn users if they are logged on at the time with an option to cancel the shutdown. We used to use Poweroff in XP but the message display will not work in 7 and the machine shuts down without any warning to a logged on user.

We've tried a couple of sceduled scripts (not Pstools) which work when user is logged on but we can't get them to work in Windows 7 machines when no user is logged on.

It looks as though PsShutdown may solve this for us from the reading the blurb. Can anyone confirm whether this will work to 1) warn a user for x minutes with a cancel option and 2) shutdown the machine (Windows 7) when no user is logged on.

Thanks
