  • Auto shutdown program that actually WORKS...

    can anyone recommend me a program to "buy " which does what the title asks for? i've tryed AutoShutdown and PowerShutdown, but they don't seem to work properly...

    what do you need this program to do exactly...i've never really heard of an auto-shutdown program. i take it it shuts down your computer at a scheduled time? specify.

        this free program switch off 2.3 available here http://www.download.com/Switch-Off/3...-10154101.html

        seems to have good ratings in regard to actually shutting down, and its free so you can't lose anything by giving it a go

          Might have to get it myself, saves getting out of bed, walking over to the pc to turn of shade 45 before going bed, now I can have it shut out on me during that exclusive snippet =D

            There's actually a windows script that you can make yourself that will shutdown the PC at a certain time. I can't remember the exact syntax but maybe google will be able to find something.

            Actually maybe this is it...Go To start menu, Control Panel, Scheduled Tasks and then click browse...you'll have to find the Shutdown.exe or something like that in your windows directory. Once you do that you can enter a time I think and then it should work. Anyways worth a try.

                hey man, i was a little shitfaced last night and therefore wasn't really sure what you were talking about...lol.

                anyways, don't use any fancy programs or whatever, just setup a Scheduled Task (Control Panel > Scheduled Tasks), and follow the wizard through, and select "Browse" and browse to %SystemRoot% > System32 > shutdown.exe (where %SystemRoot% is your C:\WINDOWS directory) and select that.

                now, where it says "Run:", and it has "C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe" in the box next to that, add "-s" to the end of this command, so now you have this, "C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -s" (without the quotes of course).

                You might want to also add this to the command, "-f"...this will ensure that ALL programs shutdown, since in some cases if you have unsaved work in say Micorsoft Word, and you try and shutdown, you get prompted to save or lose that work, and the system will not shutdown until you make that decision.

                if you do not plan on having any open programs where the "-f" command would come into play, then stick with the original command i posted ^^^.

                cheers.

                  angelus you got it man.. except one small detail, shutdown.exe isnt enough, you gotta specify what kind, so its shutedown.exe -s cuz there are several other -"letters" possible, -s means shutdown the opc, and yeah you jsut add it to schedualed tasks

                          you HAVE to have a password in order for this to work for some reason. either create an account password under, "User Accounts" in the control panel, or try something different.

                          sorry man, i forgot to mention that. just figured people password-protected their computers.
