Chapter 7. Network Configuration > Shut down without having to log on

7.13. Shut down without having to log on

It's a hassle to have to log on when what you really want to do is shut down the computer, particularly if you're installing software or doing testing that requires frequent restarts. If you don't have access to the Shutdown button on the Log On to Windows dialog box that appears when you press Ctrl-Alt-Del, you can easily enable it. Then when you need to shutdown, you can just click Shutdown on the dialog box without logging on.

7.13.1. Add Shutdown to the logon dialog

You configure the system to allow shutdown without logon through the security policy for the computer. This policy can be configured in the domain security policy or at the local security policy level. If it's defined in both policies, the domain policy takes precedence.
