Greetings - I am looking for a way to schedule a shutdown time for XP. Like a CD player that you can order it to sleep within 90 minutes, I'd like to perform the same function to my computer. I like to run my updates prior to going to bed, but am uncomfortable with leaving my computer on all night.

Any thoughts on how to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Here is a great freeware utility that will allow you to do just that.

Alternatively, you can use Task Scheduler to execute "shutdown.exe" at a certain time. Check at the command prompt for the syntax necessary for your situation (type "shutdown /?" (without the quotes) at the prompt and press Enter)
