there is most likely some kind of program... search download.com or tucows.com you'll find something...

Oh >> IDEA >> fiddle about with Schedule agent. Accessories>> System Tools>> Scheduled tasks...I have the service disabled so i dont know exactly...

yes...
make a new task in the "scheduled tasks" folder (accessed from start - all programs - accessories - system tools) by right clicking - selecting new - then scheduled task
give the task a name like shutdown or something
double click it
on the "run" line put "shutdown.exe -f -s -t00" w/o quotes (-f tells it it to force all programs to close... -s tells it to shut down... --t00 tells it how long to display a confirmation prompt for shutting down)
then set it to run at 2am every day

too make your computer turn on by itself you will have to enable that in the bios... it should be under something like "power management" or something like that... sorry, i can't give you detailedinstrucions on what to do cause not all bioses are the same.

(note: your powersupply fan will probably stay running but w/o supplying power to the motherboard and your screen will probably display "it is now safe to shutdown your computer"

I'm on my way out, so I can't write this for you

someone will come in and post it

make a batch file. with the shut down shortcut, then you can schedule that

this is a good one...I'm gonna put it on the my favorite tweaks thread when I come back...so whoever writes it gets the credit

see you later

good idea dealer

heres a copy n paste to get you started

a restart button on your desktop:

1. Create a shortcut (Right-click on desktop, select New > Shortcut).

2. For location, type the following:

shutdown -r -t 0 change the r to s for shutdown
:cool:

Thank you... I'd like to say it's my car... but it was my mom's... she was going to sell it to me for $4000 Cdn but her neighbor offered $8000 like 3 days b4 I was gonna fly down... so she went with that instead :(
O well... I'm lookin at an '88 IROC.... it's in mint condition w/ original paint... it's pretty much identical to the one in the attatched pic... I'll probably pick it up in the spring... I prefer the '91 + '92 ground effects and spoiler (for the z28) but I can't get t-tops and 5-speed in those years cause they didn't make 'em... so i'll compromise and get something a touch older.

to turn the computer on you need the Resume by Alarm feature in you bios Power Management. Set it to everyday and then the time and it should work. Mine does on an msi k7t pro R board
