Well i have a bit of a problem. i have ALOT of tv episodes on my computer which i watch everynight... and like most ppl i fall asleep infront of it.... and wake up around 5am needing to get out of bed and shut the computer down.

i need some something that can wait till they hav stopped playing and shut down, i use winamp to play them. or atleast something that can eliminate sound, harddrive monitor, anything...

any help appreciated

click start then programs then goto accessories then to system tools and open Scheduled Tasks then just schedule your computer to turn off at 5am or whatever u want it to. you may have to make a shortcut that tells your computer to turn off do a search around the forum on how to do that I know its in here somewhere, ive seen it b4. maybe try the active desktop thread. then when u have a shortcut made put it in your c: drive or somewhere that u wont see it and ur all set.


Woah.. I'm still here?

Here.. try the ShutAmp plugin here: http://www.winamp.com/plugins/details.php?id=121778

Description ripped from the link above:
"ShutAMP is yet-another general purpose plugin for Winamp 2.x which does full system (Windows) shutdown when Winamp reaches the end of playlist during the normal play."

you turn your PC off

you could also type in
shutdown /?
in the console to see how to use it, then use that to set the time or how long til you want the PC to shutdown.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
