    Manually, use ShutGui tool to shutdown the remote computer

    automaticly, write an script that checks for live clients and then sends an shutgui to the live clients.

      Also you can have a look at the properties of the user and configure their logon hours.

        I'm a tad bit confused about the scenario. What do you mean exactly when you say that users are logged in to the servers?

        Are they using remote desktop for terminal services? Or do they just have files open on the server that need to be closed? If this is the case, it would seem that forcefully shutting down the remote computers would be something of a "scorched earth policy" that might not endear you to your users. (shutdown.exe at the command line can do this with the /f and /t switch)

        Or do you mean that the client machines (Vista, XP, 2000K, etc.) need to be backed up but have users that are logged in that need to be logged out?

          Also, when are you backing up, and how are you backing up?

              I would make this policy go in effect when the backup starts and go out when the backup ends avg time of course.
