    I am looking for an auto-shutdown software so that I can shutdown my computer everyday at 8 am (the MTNL unlimited usage expires at this time!!). So please suggest me a good and simple software that'll enable me to do this.

    U could just create a shutdown shortcut using the 'shutdown -s -t 00' command and use the task scheduler to execute it at the desired time.

    Dont use a software... just do this..

    make a text file... type in "shutdown -s" and save this as name.bat
    now schedule this in task scheduler..

    start menu > programs > acessories > system tools > task scheduler

    Using SwitchOff for more than 4 years now.

    With only 64kb foot-print, it is the smallest of all and does work well too.

    Mr. Devarajan, If you cannot understand the Difference between the names Intelligent Shutdown and Intelligent Wakeup, Please learn.....

    @ evildeadregeneration has given the Link for Intelligent Wakeup and I have given the name of another software............. :?: :?: :?:
