Default Windows 7 shutdown timer?

I recently upgraded all of the machines in my house. Each client machine now uses Windows 7 Professional.
When I was using Windows XP Professional, I would often invoke remote shutdowns to client machines. The client machine would display an over-everything window, showing precise amount of time remaining before Windows shuts down.
However, when I do this to a Windows 7 client, they get a message saying "You are about to be logged off". This balloon message disappears after about five seconds. If the user misses it, they will lose their work.
Is there a way to disable this, and use the proper shutdown countdown window?
A five second balloon seems very little warning, especially when the force operative is used.

How to Use the Remote Shutdown Command in Windows

Because you shut it down via an xp machine to a windows 7 that might be a different way to do it as xp doesn't use all the same as windows 7 would.

Try that artical, sorry I have little experience in networking.
