    You might want to look into ssh. If you are happy on the command line it will give you all of that, but with X forwarding you can do amazing things.

    What is the command you are using for shutdown?
    I take it you have root access since you can reboot.

    What is the command you are using for shutdown?
    After logging to my remote pc using ssh i use the following command to shutdown.
    # shutdown -h
    After this (_) is blinking nothing else

    Are you doing it from the console or remotely?
