Windows - recording shut-down times

You could parse the Event Log ('eventvwr' on the command line) and  
check for Event ID 6005, which has the start time for the Event Log.
Not too sure if 6006 or 6008 indicates when it has stopped, although  
I think you'd only need the start time and work out the rest from there.
Event ID 6009 should time with the start of the Event Log, and also  
includes the Windows version info, it that's of any use...

The PsTools from Microsoft have the 'psloglist' command line tool  
that give you access to remote machines and includes authentication  
access (can also dump the file to the server).

Another option is to use the built in script: cscript %systemroot% 
Append '-?' (without the quotes!) to get the switches. You'll find in  
there several formats for the output file.
