Shut down PCs

Enforce a shutdown policy of all desktop computers that are not active and in use at the end of normal working hours (implement in software, no human interaction required). All modern PCs can be woken up remotely to run updates, etc and shut down again. This will not only save electricity, but make our networks less vulerable to attack.
