If there are dummy terminals connected I makes no matter as far as I'm aware.

Shutdown in the normal way that you would and you'll have no problems.

shutdown -r now

-r for reboot
-h for halt

you can also specify a time period instead of using "now"

wouldn't that shut down the system not the client?

rajashekaran are you looking for a script that "polls" the client - decides if it active then disconnects it if it isn't?
