    I run WinXP_SP2
    I have a internet plan which supports unlimited download in night only
    for that i cannot sit on PC for whole night
    Is their any software from which i can make the PC to shutdown at a particular time
    I tried "run" "shutdown -s -t 18000" but this doesnt work because it was unable to stop internet connection any my PC remains on.....
    I tried one free utility from download.com which was auto shutdown but bcoz it was free it only shutdown in 5 min or in 500 min so no time in between
    is their any other software......? :confused:

    Then you gotta download Shutdown Machine. Best piece of free software and works like a charh. Have been using for well over an year now. At 306k, it a big thing in a small package.

    Download it here.

    well if u use win XP u can tell xp to shutdown automatically , here's the command you need to type at the command prompt .
    Code:
    at {time in 24 hr format} "shutdown -s -f"
    
    example :
    
    at 15:11 "shutdown -s -f"
    
    will shut down my computer at 3:11 PM .
    
    hope you have a good sleep now .

    Well, I use Free Download Manager to manage my Shut Off! I mean u dont need to use it only for Downloading! It has got an inbuilt Scheduler too! I configure it to start my Internet connection at 2:00AM and to shut down the system at 08:00 AMagain! And you can configure it for different days, every day or particular dates!
