Does anyone know of an auto shutdown program that'll work with win2k that just shuts down automatically at a time you specify?

Do a search at PCWorld.co.nz for Autodown.exe, That's how I found the prog that I use :-)

Just what you're after!

I wouldn't bother with a 3rd party util when all you need to do is run this command:

%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe shell32.dll,SHExitWindowsEx 8

Change the number at the end to dictate what it does:

0 perform logoff
1 shutdown
4 forced shutdown (don't allow to save)
8 powers down the machine

I would suggest using the Scheduled Tasks applet to launch the command at the desired time.
