How to shutdown local machine throuh a command prompt

Need to shutdown, or reboot, your pc from a command prompt?  Use the shutdown command!

To Reboot the Machine simply just use the /r switch:
   shutdoown /r

or to shutdown the machine use the /s switch:
   shutdown /s

This command works on all servers Windows 2000 and forward.  It also works for Windows 2000 pc's and newer.
