Answer
Hi Alvin,
The only way I know of is to use a remote control software such as logmein or VNC. I personally use Mesh Central (www.meshcentral.com) the are a lot more features than just turning of the computer, as well. Such as remoting into the computer and controlling it almost as if you are sitting in front of it, uploading and downloading files etc.
