    Group Policies question

    Hello all,
    I haven't used policies much but I was wondering if it would be possible to limit users so that if you're not the Administrator, you don't have the option to Shut Down. I'm on a domain with a Windows 2000 domain controller and Windows 2000/XP workstations throughout the domain. Where can I go to set this up? Thanks for any help!

    Hit the Start button...Programs...Admin Tools...Local Security Policy. In the tree that appears on the left double click Local Policy...User Rights Assignment. Near the bottom of the screen on the right you'll see "Shut Down System" double click that.
    You'll see that all groups have permission to shut down the system, just remove the checkmark from the group that you do not want to be able to shut the system down.
    Remeber if some users belong to more than one group they will still be able to shut down.
    Good Luck
