turn off our client machines at the end of each day, nothing is ever turned

How can I force our ltsp client machines to power off?  I'm happy to pick a
timeframe of two or three hours of inactivity. At that point I don't really
care what the machine is doing -- I just want it off.  I would imagine that
there is some way to set this within the client image (not that I care
where it is set).  I've done some digging and have not found any way of
doing this, though.

We're running ltsp5 on Fedora 13, if it matters.
