Am I hurting the machine by waiting a minute or two and then cycling power?

Also, what about remote admin when I need to do a reboot?

Thanks for the replies...I thought I had done something wrong.
I really do appreciate the help from the list.

Sometimes I wonder what I'd do without you guys/ladies being around.

Try setting up the following batch file to shutdown your server. This
will shutdown Exchange it the correct sequence so that you don't have to
wait for each task to time out. Cuts your shutdown from 20 minutes to

oh it completes. there's a problem with the services.exe file
on NT 4.0
and MS Exchange. It takes 20 min or more for a full shutdown
on size of information store. You can stop all the MS Exchange
in control panel for a slightly faster shutdown...
