Here is a “green” script i have written to allow you to check if PC’s on your Windows network are left on overnight, and if any are found, to force them to shutdown….
It will report on what it is doing so you can see if there are machines that are not shutting down for some reason. It is super simple to use and uses psshutdown command line tool.
All you need to do is change the “computers.txt” file to have a list of the computer names that you want to shutdown, and then run the “shutdown.bat” file to start shutting them down! This is usually done on a machine that stays on, we run it from out SBS server from a scheduled task.
