    Is there a way using macros. etc to shut down the pc after a speculated time interval say 15mins or 1 hr etc . Much the same way a sleeptimer works for a TV or music system

    hmm .ya raven . the topic is not abt instant shutdown ..
    i was saying that hacker was aiming to shutdown instantly ..

    other than that
    you can try Banshee Alarm
    Its a wonderful alarm .. can play media or run files at particular time
    plus you can configure it to shutdown the comp at an alarm time
