    From the remote PC:
    1. Open registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System.
      Add a DWORD: LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy and set the value to 1
    2. Win+R->secpol.msc:
      Security Settings->Local Policies->User Rights Assignment-> Force shutdown from a remote system and Add Everyone to the list
    3. Open Device Manager and right click on the Network Adapter->Properties->Power Management and put a check mark on: Allow this device to wake up the computer.
    4. In the BIOS, enable Wake On Lan


    From the desktop:
    Open Admin command prompt and type:
    shutdown.exe /s /m \\XXX /t 00

    where XXX can be: Computer Name, LAN IP or Network Mac ID of the remote PC

    Heck I just use Alt +F4 then I get a menu which pops up and gives me 4 choices to what I want to do on my remote computer. This is when I am ON the remote computer from my main computer.

    Well I've had no problems doing it on mine. Maybe he had other issues that affected his computer.

    Please read the question before you answer. OP did not log into the remote computer, just want to send a command to shutdown.
