Shutdown / Reboot
Shutdown, reboot, or cancel pending shutdown of remote hosts.
Shutdown / Reboot after shutdown
This option causes the selected computers to shut down or reboot after the timeout period has elapsed. The optional messages is displayed to users of the remote systems.
This option aborts a previously scheduled shutdown. This option will cancel any pending shutdown requests on the remote system (even if the request did not originate with AutoAdministrator). When this option is selected the Timeout, Force applications to close, and Message fields are disabled.
The timeout field specifies a delay in seconds before the remote systems are shutdown or rebooted. This gives affected users some time to save their data or abort the shutdown, if necessary.
Force applications to close
Selecting this option will cause remote computers to be shutdown/rebooted even when applications with unsaved data are open. Use this option with care.
If specified, this message will be displayed on the remote computers before the computer is shutdown or rebooted. A timeout value (see above) long enough to give the read a chance to read and respond to the message should also be set.
