    Hey all,

    Just wondering if anyone has heard a program that would allow me to select a time for things to happen. More specifically I'm looking for something that would launch overnet (or KaZaA or whatever) and than kill it or maybe something that woud allow me to shutdown my system at a given time reguardless of what is running. My main reason for this is I'm on a network and don't want to hog all the bandwidth when my roommates home. So I'd like it to shutdown everyday just before he's home from work. Any ideas?

    Control Panel - Scheduled tasks.

    Schedule \Windows\system32\shutdown.exe. Type: shutdown /? to find out the appropriate switches.

    I can't believe I never thought about that.

    Thanks
