Rebooting Any Windows PC 
Preparing The Computer You Want To Reboot
The first step is to enable remote rebooting on the computer in question.
1. In order to do this you must log onto the computer as an Administrator.
2. It is then necessary to enter the run function from the start menu.
3. Once in the run window you simply have to type in services.msc and click on OK.
4. A list of available services will appear and you will need to scroll down until you see remote registry on the list.
5. Select this and right click on it, then choose properties from the menu.
6. Under startup type choose automatic.
7. You will need to reconfigure your firewall to allow Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) to be accessed. How to do this depends on the firewall you are using.
8. Finally you need to right click on 'my computer' and select the properties menu. Scroll down to computer name, domain and workgroup settings to find the computer name. Make a note of this for future use.
Once you have completed these steps the computer is ready to be rebooted from a remote location.

Rebooting The Computer Remotely
Once you know that the computer you wish to reboot from a remote terminal has been set up appropriately, you will be able to perform a remote reboot using command prompt. To do this you will need to log onto any Windows computer using an Administrator account. The next step is to access the Start menu and choose Run. The command you need to enter is cmd.exe. Once the DOS window opens type shutdown/i and press the enter key.
Next you will see the remote shutdown dialog appear on the screen. At this stage you will click on Add then type in the name of the computer from earlier. Once you have done this simply apply the required settings and hit the OK button to shut down or restart the named computer. This will not work for computers which are connected to the same local network.
