Auto Turn off

Hi I am currently downloading a large file which will probly take another four hours so is there a way I can set windows to turn off when it is done.
Thanks Alan

Four hours seem a very long time for a download, perhaps if you used Download Accelerator Plus, you could do it quicker.

On a 2MB connection,i just took 3 hours to download a near 700MB file from a mirror site. (PCLinuxOS 2007)
I guess the mirror was busy Lol.

I didnt use a download manager/accelerator in case my download became corrupted,though i guess thats always possible anyway.

I always use DAP, I have never had to do a large download in two 'slices' but if I wanted to I could quite easily download half then stop and restart the download, from where I had stopped it, to completion at anytime to suit myself.
