Turning Off a Windows 10 Computer via Wireless Internet

By russellajax ·
Hello, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Russell, and I am currently a high school student in his senior year. For my final project, I came up with the idea to remotely turn off the school's computer via Internet, presumably things related to the Internet of Things (IoT).
For background purposes, I came up with this idea because the school complained how the students weren't responsible and didn't turn the school computer off. To combat this, I came up with an idea to turn the computer off via the internet, or at least in a wireless way.
While doing my research, I became familiar with WOL (Wireless-On-LAN). However, WOL requires the computers to use an Ethernet cable, whereas my school computer is connected to the school Wi-Fi wirelessly.
So, do anyone have an idea that could help me and my project? Thank you in advance

Turn off computers on same wireless network

If you have multiple computers on your network, you can shut them down remotely regardless of their operating system. If you are using Windows, you'll need to set the remote computer to be able to shut down remotely. Once this is set up, you can perform the shut down from any computer, including Linux. Mac computers can be shut down remotely with a simple Terminal command.
