If you want to shutdown a router (don't understand the reason for that, but anyway), then I recommend purchasing a 'managed' power supply. Remote control the power supply and deactivate the 'power port' where the router is connected to.
It is worth noting that the sledge hammer approach invalidates the manufacturer's warranty in almost all cases.
There is no IOS command to shut down a router. You can reload one, but you can't shut one down. You can also disable specific interfaces by using the "shutdown" command in that interfaces' configuration mode. Alternatively, if a full shutdown is needed, Cisco routers come with a power switch on the chassis.
Incidentally, does anyone know why Cisco's switches don't have an on/off switch, when their routers do?
