How to turn off my iphone using the computer?

My LCD doesn't seem to work and my power button is broken. How do I turn off my phone using the computer?

I know the phone is on because I can see it when I connect to itunes and it will ring when it receives a call.

Thank you.

Unless you're jailbroken, I don't think there is anyway besides letting the battery die.

If you did install OpenSSH you could send it the commend reboot and I think shutdown.

Or install sbsettings in order to restart it.
But if you do shut it off how will you turn it back on without a working power button?

Well to turn it back on would be simple. Just plug it back into a power source, it will power right up. To turn it off, yeah, good luck with finding out how to do that. If you do find it out, please let us all know.
