scheduled shutdown of XP home

I used to have a little freeware utility that shut down XP automatically each night after running my backup routine.

After a recent reinstall of Windows, I forgot to save it :-(

Anyone have any ideas what it might be? All I know is that it was free and did what it promised to do!

Thanks as always, Dio

Thanks ArrGee; it was neither of those but I like the XP way of doing it. I think I'll give that one a shot.

You can probably get backup tools that have the option built in if you search around. The danger of scheduling it (at least in the commercial world) you risk your backup not having been finished when the schedule kicks-in, unless you allow plenty of time.

Going to stick with ArrGee's sugestion. Thanks again.
