Slawdog Shutdown has a very easy to use interface and includes many shutdown options (turn off, reboot, log off, lock, hibernate, etc).
The program allows you to determine how long the warning dialog box appears before shutdown takes place. Slawdog Shutdown also lets you password protect the settings and the program can be set to empty the recycle bin on shutdown. All very useful features for a classroom setting.
Undoubtedly, this is a very handy tool for anyone who is in charge of a school/college computer laboratory.
Simply set the shutdown time (this can be set to repeat each day at the same time) and Slawdog Shutdown does the rest.
You don't need to worry about the machines being switched off correctly at the end of the day anymore!
