Re: Program for Automatic Startup and Shutdown of Computer

It is possible to restart, shut down, log off current pause but not to start automatically (to my knowledge). You can do all this via the Windows Task Scheduler. To restart, you can put into hibernation, and start automatically any program at any Time , which simulate virtually a restart! (do not forget to check the option "out of the day and run the program" in the Task Scheduler. I gotta go look on the forum how to use Task Scheduler if you do not know well.

Thank you for your reply

if we can not start my computer is not automatically a problem than I particularly want is to make my computer shuts off automatically. I searched your forum on how to use Task Scheduler and I found nothing that would help me (sorry I'm not very good) Otherwise I went in Task Scheduler but I do plan to launch programs, but I can not schedule the automatic closing.

Use this

Auto Shutdown is a free utility for automatically shutting down or logging off a computer. An automated shutdown/logoff is achieved in two ways: You can set the exact time of shutdown or you can wait for a specific number of days,hours or minutes before shutting down. The progam can be configured for forced shutdown/restart/logoff and also has a poweroff option. A scheduled task can be cancelled at anytime by a simple right-click on the timer.

Otherwise, nothing to install,

you enter this into a text file shutdown-s-t 01 and save it
then you rename it to. bat or . cmd
and you say to the Task Scheduler to run this program
