Powershell: Locating unexpected shutdowns

We had an issue on site where there was a room of machines reported having unexpected shutdowns.

In order to quantify the extent and target problem clients the following powershell was run on the clients using remote powershell.

Get-EventLog -LogName System | Where-Object { $_.EventID -eq ā€˜6008ā€™ }

This allowed us to identify the worst offending clients and do some more extensive analysis.
