    I can think of ways to do this by scheduling tasks on each of the systems, but you want them to be executed from a 5th system?
    Hmmm... Perhaps someone with network admin experience could enlighten us.

    Just write a server-client program which will communicate with each other (one another) through LAN. Once you're inside a program, shutting down the PC is a trivial task.

    However, if you can somewhoe achieve calling shutdown.exe from another machine, writing a program would not be necessary. Also it's worth looking around (google), probably someone has already written it.

    Sit down in-front of main PC (PC 1) - reach down to your left, pick up shotgun, point shotgun at PCs 2, 3, 4, and 5, pulling trigger after each one

    Job done

    no, this is not perfect: I'd placed all PCs in line and shot into the first one and all others go down the same time. This saves a lot of bullets. Most perfect is when puttn your head in between the first PC and the gun :D

    Why use another PC if you want to shutdown others at certain time? :confused:

    Win+R: shutdown /i

    thanks for your fast replies guys,

    i am in a Home of 3 Floors, all the PC's are in diffrent Rooms and on Diffrent floors, but all of the connected to Internet with one ISP Provider,.

    I am not having like you guys Programming background, i just need a solid Prepaired Script, sothat i can Install on Windows 8 PC, to Shut Down all other PC's by issuing a COMMAND, in the evening around 9PM, so that my Kids & my Brother Kids etc should not use PC's any more once I shut Down from my Windows 8 PC.

    or any TELNET software etc, if it make this job eassy then i am ready to install that Software also, only the condition all 4 TERMINAL must shut down at the same time, with out waiting for them to finish their incomplete work.

    So any already written Scripts or Commands, if any body know i will give a try.

    i really want to do this in my Home.

    Thanlks

    install Teamviewer on each machine and shut them down remotely every day since they all are in the same LAN/Wlan. Set a pass for each machine so that kids have no access later on after you have shut them down (not the kids but the machines)

    i alreadyInstalled Teamviewer9 on all 5 PC's,
    1)--when i sit on my Wind ows8 PC to shutdown, then i have to do all the 4 PC's 1 by 1, it is not going to shutdown all at a time. (i have to login into each pc 1 by 1 then i have to shutdown manually 1 by 1 each P, takes time to do this manual process).
    2)--some time they Disale the Teamviewer on their PC's, so could not Shut down in this Case their PC.

    So i am looking for some more reliable solution, so that they can't DISABLE any thing in their PC. Total Control of their PC's must have on Windows 8 PC.

    Hope you guys knows more about this.
    thanks

    I think you can do this with shutdown -m commands though I'm not entirely sure how to get the relevant permissions...
    Code:
    shutdown -m \\livingroompc -r -c "This system will shutdown in 60 seconds" -t 60
    You could make a script and just call the command and change the name of the target pcs

    Again, I have no idea how to get your system the authority over the other systems.

    I used to shutdown ppls computers at work If they was being to loud on the phones (call center) and would do my best not to roll out my cubical onto the ground laughing when one of them started flipping out.
