running XP pro, is it possible for instance to set PC to shut down after 2 hours even if something is running. I want the pc to go off at a set time no mattew what it is doing.

Free option; click here

or use the built-in shutdown command from a command prompt

shutdown -s -t <time after which to shutdown in seconds>

so 2 hours would be

shutdown /s /t 7200

adding a /f will force apps that usually pop up a warning to shutdown too
