You can make a bat file using the psshutdown
utility from sysinternals

pshutdown -s \\computer1
pshutdown -s \\computer2
pshutdown -s \\computer3

You can run the bat file as a scheduled task to shutdown all computers. It may be a bit tedious to put a line in for each PC, but 150 lines shouldn't take to long

thanx for this but I Have HP Compaq Computers and when i remotely shut them down they don't poweroff, they just end on the message "Now you can safely shutdown your pc". please tell me a way to shutdown + poweroff these compay computers. thanx in advance.

What types of Server-Hardware do you use? if they are not switching off after shutting down you either need to install apm/acpi support or you do have elder types that do not support this ..
