Good one there, the SwitchOff tool, but shutdown.exe can only be used a timer, not an advanced shutdown tool that allows you to set the exact time, save your files, etc. etc.

Whats the point using the power-save options if you want to shut the computer down at a specific time? He pretty much wanted to shut the computer down, not to put it in a powersave mode. And oh, you mean Control Panel>Power Options although I guess you can get to the Power Options panel this way too. :D

Allows you to shut down or restart a local or remote computer. Used without parameters, shutdown will logoff the current user.

shutdown [{-l|-s|-r|-a}] [-f] [-m [\\ComputerName]] [-t xx] [-c "message"] [-d[p]:xx:yy]


-l : Logs off the current user, this is also the defualt. -m ComputerName takes precedence.

-s : Shuts down the local computer.

-r : Reboots after shutdown.

-a : Aborts shutdown. Ignores other parameters, except -l and ComputerName. You can only use -a during the time-out period.

-f : Forces running applications to close.

-m [\\ComputerName] : Specifies the computer that you want to shut down.

-t xx : Sets the timer for system shutdown in xx seconds. The default is 20 seconds.

-c "message" : Specifies a message to be displayed in the Message area of the System Shutdown window. You can use a maximum of 127 characters. You must enclose the message in quotation marks.

-d [p]:xx:yy : Lists the reason code for the shutdown. The following table lists the different values.

rather than installing any softwares you can change use this and set the time for shutdown

Dude, shutdown.exe only allows timers to be set for shutdown. You CANNOT program the exact time, nor can you save information on programs. You wouldn't want to be downloading a 300MB+ file in the background or a Word file with half-saved data or a DVD ripping and have them quit, would you? :D
