Type shutdown /? which will give you the different options.

of course you must be in the cmd prompt.

From the looks of your situation, it may be as simple as a connection problem. Are you using a wireless network?

That only shuts down the local computer, SkyperX, on the other hand is looking to shut down a remote computer, so he most likely has to use the /m switch along with /s.

Uninstall your current printer then try the shutdown -i command again.
