Wow, didn't really expect you to read this far down. The latest iteration of the site is in open beta. It's a gentle open beta-- not in prime-time just yet. It's being hosted over at UpGuard (link) and you are more than welcome to give it a shot. Couple things:
Today, I needed to reboot a Windoze machine on another continent which had no shutdown or restart options via "Start" in the remote desktop (the only options available were: "Logoff, Disconnect, or Lock").
Fortunately, I found how to shutdown and restart from the command line.
wait a hour and 10 seconds to shutdown
You can easily stop shutdowning process by CTRL+C
This way, you can specify how many hours in which you want your machine to shut down.
you may as well use shutdown -h 18:32 to shutdown your machine at 18:32.
From the 'disown' man page:
disown prevents the current shell from sending a HUP signal to each of the given jobs when the current shell terminates a login session.
((60 * 4)) will be turned into 240 by bash before being input to the shutdown command, replace the 4 with whatever number of hours you want, let bash do the math.
Good practice to use "shutdown -r now" instead of reboot.
Force an fsck on reboot. Useful on a system where / has mounted read-only because of file system issues.
Replace 60 with the number of minutes until you want the machine to shut down.
Alternatively give an absolute time in the format hh:mm (shutdown -h 9:30)
Or shutdown right away (shutdown -h now)
This will issue a shutdown command to the Windows machine. username must be an administrator on the Windows machine. Requires samba-common package installed. Other relevant commands are:

net rpc abortshutdown : abort shutdown of the Windows machine
