Shutdown computer

You can use the Shutdown computer task to shutdown or reboot client computers. Click New to begin setting up your new task.


Enter basic information about the task, such as the Name and optional Description. Task Category and Task Type are pre-selected based on your previous choice. The Task Type (see the list of all Client Tasks) defines the settings and the behavior for the task.


Reboot computer(s) - select this check box if you want to reboot the client computer after task completion. If you want to shutdown computer(s), deselect this option.


Review the summary of configured settings and click Finish. The Client Task is now created and a pop-up window will open. We recommend that you click Create Trigger to specify when this Client Task should be executed and on what Targets. If you click Close, you can create a Trigger later. To create a trigger afterward, select the client task instance and select Run on from the drop-down menu.
