I've been using Remote Desktop Connection to get into a workstation, but I'm not able to use the shutdown/restart function in the Start menu while doing this.
I've put a few really helpful options in the answer below.
I wanted to make sure some really good answers were also mentioned along with my own on this.
And here they are in no particular order.
- Force the shutdown from JosephStyons
- Executing the DLL file from VonC
- Run it from the Run Box from Dean
- Remote Shutdown from Kip
