    I've been messing around with controlling my computer with my Droid remotely, using Wake On Lan to turn it on over the internet and Torrent-Fu/AndroidVNC to interact with it. The only thing I can't seem to figure out, however, is remote shutdown.

    Can anyone recommend me an app that will do this? I thought AndroidVNC would have a menu option for it or something, but no such luck.

    Looks good, but $10 is a little steep when I only really want it to shut down my computer remotely. Any free suggestions? I feel like this is something that should be a lot easier to find for free. D:

    Looks like the beta is closed, unless I'm supposed to find it elsewhere. Is a remote shutdown app really not available for free? I don't have much programming experience, but it seems like it would be simple enough to send a command over Wi-Fi/3G to my computer and tell it to shut down.

    Maybe I'll have to learn how to code for Android and make one myself. :p

    Well, I found the LogMeIn Beta, but it's still not quite what I wanted. The VNC app I have does about the same thing, with no straightforward "Shut Down" command in the menus. I want something simple and quick to use, not a full remote desktop that I have to navigate.

    If you are controlling it with androidvnc, look at http://www.sysinternals.com and put a copy of psshutdown.exe on it. It will shutdown local or remote machines.

    You didn't say which O/S you are using.

    For GNU/Linux try Connectbot.
