Shutting down the AS/400 for the night

We usually only IPL on Friday nights, but because of a A.C. problem in our computer room last night we decided to shut down our AS/400 for the night. We tried using the change power on/off schedule, but received the following error message.

Message: No authority to use command. Cause: The user does not have the authority to the STRSBS, ENDSBS, or PWRDWNSYS command.

The User profile QSYSOPR does not have object execute authority to the commands listed. In addition, the user may be required to have other specific authorities depending on your system security level. If all else fails, execute the command(s) under QSECOFR or a profile with *ALLOBJ authority.
