you can use the following code to shutdown the PC

shell("shutdown -s")

it will display a dialogbox and the Pc will shutdown after 30 seconds.

Use timer to shutdown PC after 15 mins

shell("shutdown -s")
this only works if both the computer the application is running on, and the target computer is running windows xp & newer

if there are systems running an older version of windows than winxp you'll want to look into api calls
