Networking – How to shutdown a computer on the network


I want to shutdown a computer on my network at home. When I try the usual 'shutdown' command, I get the 'Access denied (5)' message. In what way must my computer be connected with the other computer in order for me to take control?

What I would do is if you are on a windows computer you could type: "shutdown -i" and that will open up this little window, from that window, if your at school per se you would just click the computer or computers that you want to shutdown and then give your reason and then press shutdown. or if your not at school, say you want to prank a friend, you could just add their IP address to the add computer button and I believe that would allow you to send the shutdown command to said person. I hope this helps in any way.
