Program For Sutting Down PC

Is there a free program that will shutdown my PC at a specified time? I want something to complete but not leave my PC on all day when I am out. I want a program that will shutdown PC in say 2 hours. Thanks.

Go to Start > Run and type/paste in:

shutdown -s -t 7200

and click OK.

To abort the shutdown, go to Start > Run, and type/paste in:

shutdown -a

and click OK.

Hi try using power management to put your PC in standby after a certain time. Find in control panel, power options, you can even use hibernate which saves the data to a file on your pc and switches off completely.

Be aware that the hiberfil.sys (hibernate) file will use hard drive space equal to the amount of memory you have installed.

The value "7200" is 2 hours in seconds, you can change that to any time you wish, but it must be in seconds.

On the Windows desktop, right-click and select New and Shortcut.



If you are using Windows XP, in the command line path, type the following exactly:
SHUTDOWN -s -t 01

Please note the spaces before the hyphens and after "t".

Click Next, name the shortcut and click Finish. Now, to shutdown Windows, just double-click this shortcut.
Once you have it on your desktop right click > properties >change Icon and there is a selection of icons one of which is a big red stop button

Thanks SANTOS7 was spot on.
