Windows 7: Shut down or restart computer via Remote Desktop?

Shut down or restart computer via Remote Desktop?

On XP I always used to bring up the task manager on the remote computer and choose "shut down" or "restart" in one of the toolbar menus, but there's no such menu on 7. Anyone got an idea of how I can shut down or restart a Windows 7 machine via Remote Desktop?

Oddish

I dont use remote desktop, but instead use teamviewer and Im assuming you mean other than start>shutdown>restart, right? Then there is the Contro;>alt>del and right box to shutdown or re-start.

Thanks! I should've known there was a command line solution for this.

If you click the "Windows Securtiy" button under the start orb (only visible there when you are connect via Remote Desktop) you will be presented with a screen of choices. Click the red icon in the lower right corner of that screen and you will have choices to Restart, Sleep and Shutdown.

While using remote desktop, press ctrl-alt-end. You'll get an option to shut down/restart.

+1 for CTRL + ALT + END - it accomplishes the exact same thing as the Start --> Windows Security

The problem with Ctrl + Alt + End is that I have no "Restart" or "Shutdown" options in any of the menus, as I explained in the original post.

To shutdown. From start->run (winkey + R) 'shutdown -f -s -t 1'
To restart, 'shutdown -f -r -t 1'.
