    is there any software that will allow to set a timer for pc to shutdown after x no. of hrs after it has been started on?

    like allowing a kid only a couple of hrs of gaming on the pc when parents are not at home and after that the pc should shut down automatically. is it possible?

    Try this free software which I used for a long time without problems or spywares. (Still check it after downloading in any case...)

    http://www.download.com/Switch-Off/3000-2344_4-10154101.html
    It is a light 64 KB file which is also light in resources, 600 KB RAM when running. You have options for all default power off functions offered by Windows (Shut Down, Hibernate, etc) with a clock or reverse timer. :)

    Why can't you do it using the scheduled tasks? I mean, you can do it for logoff using the scheduled tasks, but why shut down does not work?
