    It is possible.
    Try the line [code]
    Shell "RUNDLL32 KRNL386.EXE,exitkernel" 'for windows 98 / Me
    Shell "rundll32.exe shell32.dll,SHExitWindowsEx 8" 'for win XP
    [/code]

    It is possible to remotely shut down the machine over lan, if you implement the shutdown feature in a server, and get the server to start with windows. Then you could use a client to activate the server, and make the machine reboot.

    you will have to write a program which listens for the shutdown command, run it on the remote computer, and let the program shut down the computer when it is activated via the lan.

    [code]Shell "rundll32.exe shell32.dll,SHExitWindowsEx 4"[/code]

    for remote shutdown... try this api..

    [code]
    'API Calls

    'Function InitiateSystemShutDown
    'lpMachineName : string that specifies the network name of the computer to shut down. If lpMachineName is an empty string, the function shuts down the local computer.
    'lpMessage : string that specifies a message to display in the shutdown dialog box. This parameter can be NULL if no message is required.
    'dwTimeout : Specifies the time (in seconds) that the dialog box should be displayed. While this dialog box is displayed, the shutdown can be stopped by the AbortSystemShutdown function.
    ' If dwTimeout is not zero, InitiateSystemShutdown displays a dialog box on the specified computer. The dialog box displays the name of the user who called the function, displays the message specified by the lpMessage parameter, and prompts the user to log off. The dialog box beeps when it is created and remains on top of other windows in the system. The dialog box can be moved but not closed. A timer counts down the remaining time before a forced shutdown. If the user logs off, the system shuts down immediately. Otherwise, the computer is shut down when the timer expires.
    '
    ' If dwTimeout is zero, the computer shuts down without displaying the dialog box, and the shutdown cannot be stopped by AbortSystemShutdown.
    'bForceAppsClosed : Specifies whether applications with unsaved changes are to be forcibly closed. If this parameter is TRUE, such applications are closed. If this parameter is FALSE, a dialog box is displayed prompting the user to close the applications.
    'bRebootAfterShutdown : Specifies whether the computer is to restart immediately after shutting down. If this parameter is TRUE, the computer is to restart. If this parameter is FALSE, the system flushes all caches to disk, clears the screen, and displays a message indicating that it is safe to power down.
    '
    'To shut down the local computer, the calling process must have the SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME privilege. To shut down a remote computer, the calling process must have the SE_REMOTE_SHUTDOWN_NAME privilege on the remote computer. By default, users can enable the SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME privilege on the computer they are logged onto, and administrators can enable the SE_REMOTE_SHUTDOWN_NAME privilege on remote computers.

    Public Declare Function InitiateSystemShutdown Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "InitiateSystemShutdownA" (ByVal lpMachineName As String, ByVal lpMessage As String, ByVal dwTimeout As Long, ByVal bForceAppsClosed As Long, ByVal bRebootAfterShutdown As Long) As Long

    'Function AbortSystemShutDown
    'lpMachineName : string that specifies the network name of the computer where the shutdown is to be stopped. If lpMachineName is an empty string, the function stops the shutdown on the local computer.

    Public Declare Function AbortSystemShutdown Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "AbortSystemShutdownA" (ByVal lpMachineName As String) As Long
    [/code]

    then just call:

    InitiateSystemShutdown "\pc to shutdown", "The system is Shutting Down", 30, True, True
