opening Local Security Policy. Expand Local Policies, User Rights Assignment. Check "Shut Down the System" in the right pane. If it only contains Administrators, add user or group accordingly.
I have just added a new PC to my domain, and when any users other than admin try to shut down the PC, the only option they have listed is "Log Off". If they press the power button, the machine will shut down properly.
I'm sure this is something to do with Local Policies, but I can't find a reference to it anywhere. I'm running Windows XP SP2 on a Windows 2003 domain. These users can shut down any other PC's, just not the new one.
Can you help me out here?
