All you of might have thought about scheduling a shutdown after a
while. There are several small application programs are available in net
for the purpose. But I would suggest that you should not go for any
external software for these kinds of simple tasks.
You can schedule a shutdown for your computer by following a few
instructions. You can also create icons for a scheduled shutdown on your
desktop if you frequently needs a scheduled shutdown. Read my article
for creating a desktop shutdown icon.
Follow these instructions for scheduling a shutdown.
after the -t you have to give the time in seconds.
Suppose your want to turn off your computer after 1 Hour then use the
Calculator to find the seconds, 1*60*60 will give you the result 3600.
And then your command is shutdown -s -t 3600.
- Click Start menu(Win Menu)
- Click Run. If you are using Windows XP you'll see the Run icon in
your start menu itself. If you are using Windows 7 type run on your
start menu search and then you'll see the Run Icon.(Instead of Step 1 & 2 you can press Win Key + R to get the Run Command Wizard)
- In the Run Command Wizard type "shutdown -s -t time_in_seconds" without the quotes .Ex : shutdown -s -t 600, this will shutdown your computer after 10 Minutes.
