NTRIGHTS.EXE came with the NT Resource kit. With it, you
can set a number of local security policy settings. AD
made a lot of that redundant.

SeShutdownPrivilege is one that removes or grants the
option to shut the system down to local users and/or
groups. Removing it means a user can only log out, but
the machine can still be shut down from the login screen.

By controlling this from AD, I can remove or grant the
privilege just by moving machines between OU's.
