Is there a relatively easily method of automating shut down idle VM's using vROPS 6.6, preferably with notifications and tagged VM's only

Best you could so is create a report for the idle VMs and export it to CSV then have a PowerShell script to loop the CSV and shut them down via PowerCLI.

One other option is to create an alert for "VM is idle" with a action to shutdown the VM. I think you would have to manual click the alert and accept the shutdown action for each VM though.

But as Chip said, there is nothing native to do this automatically.
