    Folks, I'm wondering...

    Is there any such thing as a tool or utility that allow a logged in networked admin user to restart/sleep or shut down a server from another terminal or workstation??

    It'll be kinda useful at times.. I ain't so much bothered about starting a remote system.

    Can you not do this with basic screen sharing if the remote system has the remote administration option in sharing preferences enabled?

    Also, while it's probably not what you are looking for as it's expensive and designed for administering computer labs and such, but Apple's Remote Desktop product will do this and much more.

    Also possible to use SSH (via terminal) to shutdown machine.

    Well.. since I don't know how, you might like to supply instructions/commands. You can even PM me, you you'd prefer.

    You have to enable SSH in your Sharing Prefs and/or remote access in the same prefs. Then you need your IP to login to your computer. If you don't know how then you'll likely want to use my favorite link:

    If you setup your machine to allow for "Remote login" in the sharing preferences you can connect to that IP address in terminal using the command: ssh [username]@[ip address]

    enter your username, then it might ask you to add an entry for security (say yes) then enter your password.

    Then you can run: sudo shutdown -r now ----- to restart
    or sudo shutdown -h now ------ to shutdown

    The latest version (3.3) definitely works with SL. No problems at all.

    Great tool for managing several machines, but not worth the price for sleeping/restarting a single machine.
