    I don't think there is a corresponding feature to shut down your machine (at least not using the WOL technology)

    The most common option if you are talking about Windows machines is to use the "shutdown" command.

    This will let you power off a remote machine.

    There is also a more robust tool called psshutdown that you can use that is also free.

    I can't think of anything you could run from your router that would work off the top of my head though if that is what you have to do.

    I've seen examples of doing this via python from a Linux machine, but not sure if you could imbed that in the router and run it. Just google "shutdown windows from linux"
