Technologies providing remote access to computer systems are widely used these days. That is extremely convenient, and it eases up the hard labor of system administrators essentially. They no longer need to run all over the office and visit each user personally – just logging on to the computer remotely will do the job. But all these benefits fade instantly if the remote computer is turned off. In this case, one would have to walk and turn the computer on. Now, what if there is a hundred or two hundreds of computers, and they are located in a high-rise business center? Network Shutdown Tool has been developed for such cases specially. The application allows managing the computer power state centrally, over network. You can turn on, turn off or reboot groups of computers with a click of the mouse. The application supports the Wake-On-LAN technology. Network Shutdown Tool runs effectively in large and small local networks. With this application, a skilled system administrator can squeeze a lot more out of his regular office hours, and the scheduler will help him automate the computer power state management routines. Managing the computer power state centrally, you can significantly cut your electricity bills. Among pleasant features of Network Shutdown Tool: it doesn’t require installation on the client side, simply configured and run.
