To improve Windows Server I suggest you ...

hide power button from terminal server users

TS users keep hitting the powerbutton. can we change the behaviour of the power button or hide it entirely

they intend to log off but they keep powering the server down.

    There's a regkey/gpo setting you can set to hide the restart and shutdown options.
    If you need to shutdown or restart a server, you can still use the cmd line.

    Just Google for "windows server hide shutdown button", lots of options here.
    There's a gpo setting, regkey and you could also play with the user rights assignment.
