Greetings everyone, it's me again - this time with the second half of the Wake on LAN
I want to powerdown a remote PC simply by double clicking a desktop shortcut on my local machine, and it should be possible using the shutdown
I have tried creating a new shortcut with "shutdown /s /m \\[computer name]" with both the name of the computer and the IP address, but neither works. As a check I tried shutdown /i for the GUI and it returns an "access is denied.(5)" error. I've even done this in an open as administrator command prompt
, but doesn't work. What's confusing is both accounts local & remote are admin accounts so I shouldn't have any access problems.
As it is, I can shutdown remotely, but I have to 1st initiate a remote desktop connection, wait 20 seconds for it to connect then doubleclick a shutdown pc link
on the remote's desktop. This has a 30second delay for me to close the remote dektop connection.
Anybody, little help please?
