Schedule a Windows shutdown, restart, stand by, log off, hibernate, with Auto Shutdown
Auto Shutdown is a free utility that will let you schedule easily a Windows shut down, restart, log off, stand by & hibernate.
You can use Auto Shutdown to turn off Windows at a specific time and date, at specific times on specific week days, after a specific period of time from now, or at a specific time after system reboot.
The program works even on Windows 7 and the only drawback I noticed, is that immediately when it starts selects the first available option of Shutting Windows down 1 min from ‘now’, which makes one uneasy that a shutdown is probable, although the choice is indeed activated only after pressing the “apply” button.
For an easier and simple tool, for manual shutdown, working also on Windows 8, check Windows Rule.
