Sometimes we need to shutdown our Computer or Laptop after a specific time or period. In that time you will not stay infront of your computer. But you need to shutdown the PC. So what will you do? Say for example, you need to download a large file and you want to shutdown the PC after completing the Download and you’re not around. So here is the solution. I am going to show you how to How to Auto Shutdown your Computer After a Specific Time With or Without Software. Yes ! You my do it with a easy small software. Or just a piece of code can do that for you.
Auto Shutdown your PC With Software:
This is very simple and no chance of mistake. It can be used by anyone. A little Java application to schedule computer shutdown.
- Schedule PC Shutdown
- Up to 12 hours
- Cancel option
2) Extract the file ScheduledShutdown1.0.zip.
3) Install Scheduled Shutdown.
4) Run Scheduled Shutdown. Now Slide the Slider to a Specified Time Interval and Click Start.
5) It will starts the Countdown until it finishes to Shutdown your Computer.
You can Cancel anytime by Clicking Cancel Button. That’s why I like it most.
Auto Shutdown your PC Without Software:
There is a simple RUN command that will automatically shut down your PC after a given period.
>Click on Start
>Go to Run or Just hit “windows button + R”
>Type shutdown.exe -s -t 300 (it is the time converted in second, after which the PC will shutdown)
For example if I give shutdown.exe -s -t 300, the system will shut down in 300 Seconds. If you need to make it one hour, just input shutdown.exe -s -t 3600
>then press OK.
Be careful about the space after shutdown.exe & after shutdown.exe –s.
If you want to cancel it, just open Run by hitting “Windows Button +R” or by just choosing start >run and then type
This will abort any shutdown schedules that are already running.
