after a successful os Deployment (Windows XP Pro) and successful installation of the landesk client I want my computer to shutdown.
who is that possible?
Yes. If you are using OS Provisioning, add a System Configuration action for Reboot/Shutdown computer. If you are using OS Deployment, then look at this thread to see how you can create a shutdown command. You would need to advanced edit the script and add a new REMEXEC line calling the command.

for some odd reason, at least for me. Using the Reboot / Shutdown command in Provisioning doesnt always process a proper return code. Sometimes you get it before it reboots, sometimes it has to wait til after the machine comes back up, logs in and starts back up provisioning only to tell the server that it rebooted. It drove me crazy of all the different scenarios that I got, so i ended up with just using an execute command with shutdown.exe /r /t 40 and provisioning would provide a successful return code everytime and do it before the machine was rebooted.
