How to turn off PC as a Schedule

  Woodmouse 18 22:36 12 Sep 2007

Running Windows XP Professional. I set up my PC to record a TV programme at 11pm which might finish at 1am. Is there a way I can set up a task to shut off the computer at a certain time, as the recording will have completely finished and I do not want it left on for the rest of the night. Look forward to hearing any suggestions.

I too run XP Pro and this is the program I use. It never gives me any problems its an excellent little program.

This is the direct download link for the program I mention, it comes in a zip file.
