Auto Shutdown Windows after VLC or any media player finishes a playlist

I like to listen to some music as I go to sleep.

There exist Winamp plugins that will shutdown the PC after Winamp finishes a playlist — but I haven’t found some VLC or XMPlay plugin that would shutdown Windows.

There is a way for the job to be done in the easiest, although not ‘perfect’, way. You can use a utility that will shutdown your PC after a predefined time. Have your favorite player start playing and let this utility turn off the PC when the time needed for the playlist to finish is over.

* Don’t miss VLC Untied, a free program that lets you select one or more files or folders in Windows Explorer and load them to VLC media player instantly using a keyboard shortcut, even removing completely any files that may be already loaded and playing.
