    Phil has been helping me with this one but let me give you the reasons why.

    My Son, Leg in cast, has taken to staying up until 3:00 in the morning playing on the computer (mainly the laptop) with out us knowing, So I want to stop him from using the internet after 12:00 midnight which I feel is more than fair.

    I have setup logon hours in active directory but this will only stop him from logging on after 12:00, if he is currently logged on at midnight then nothing happens. I am looking for a script that I can run as a scheduled task from the server that will logg him off which ever machine he is using, anyone got any clues???

    why not just use psshutdown and have it scheduled to run at 12
    will force the machine to shutdown and restart, at which point he cant log back on anyway

    or that trick above might work ;) (just read the link lol)

    I just had a look at the Net Accounts idea above and it is a good little command to remember but it only forces a logof for people who have had time restrictions that have been set by a group policy, I need a program or script that will identify a user and log them off.

    thanks anyway guys, keep the ideas coming.

    I will have a look at the pssutdown idea later.

    Thanks again

    did you try PSSHutdown yet? it can force a machine to shutdown (restart with the right switches), not sure if it has to be a domain computer or not, especially if executed locally
