Does anyone know of any free software that will force quit all of the windows applications and turn off the computer after a certain length of time that I define

You could maybe set your Scheduled Tasks to shut down the computer, using the "Shutdown.exe" file in the Windows/System32 folder, at a preset time.

You could also create a .bat file (using Notepad) using this command line:

shutdown.exe -s -t xx

where xx is the number of seconds until shutdown occurs, for example:

shutdown.exe -s -t 10

would shutdown the computer in 10 seconds.
