ugh thats clearly impossible.
and can you walk us through what you want to do a little if you dont mind cause if your mom can click a link so that you can remotely shut down her computer she can surely find her way to the start shutdown button

Been ages since I've done this (Uni 3 years ago) and wouldn't know if there were any problems with such. Better idea is a pcAnywhere type program either by direct dial or over the web. WinVNC is available but as it is open source, it can be a security risk.
If you really want to go nuts, use MS SMS.

STiX - get a price on pcAnywhere or find an equivalent. Then set up a modem dedicated to this program that you can dial into. From memory the license allows each pcAnywhere server to install the dialler client on unlimited machines - you can only use one at a time. This can be expensive if you live long distance.
Alternatively, use the native VPN setup in XP to have a private network between you and your Mum and then access that way. Only allow pcAnywhere to be accessed via that VPN link to limit security risks.
Does anyone have an opinion on terminal services solutions?

It will allow you remotely shutdown a machine by ip and/or machine name. It will also allow you to specify a username and password within the command arguments in case your local username/password doesn't match with one on the remote machine.

C:\path_to_psshutdown\psshutdown \\mom -k
Where the path_to_psshutdown is path to psshutdown, e.g. if you downloaded and extracted the zip to desktop, then the command is something like this:
"C:\Documents and Settings\STiX\Desktop\PsShutdn\psshutdown.exe" \\mom -k
Where 'STiX' is your Windows username.
This command should poweroff computer named 'mom'.
You can give this command from Windows' Run, Start->Run.
