Question about Computers & Internet
You can bring up the run menu from start -> Run OR hold down the windows key and press R.
Now on the run menu, you can write commands to the machine. A command good for this task is shutdown.
On the above picture you can see the usage of this command, its on a windows 7 machine so it will be a little different on yours.
Lets say you want to shut down the computer in 1 hour after you have left it. you would then write
and then after it, press spacebar to add a space and then add /s
The /s command tells it to shutdown the computer.
so your command looks like this at this point: Shutdown /s
The above command would shutdown the computer instantly, we can set a timer, for this we use the /t command.
So now your command looks like this: shutdown /s /t
Now for the last part, how long do you want the machine to wait until it shuts down? for 1 hour you would enter 3600
shutdown /s /t 3600
the above command brings up a timer on your computer screen telling it will be shut down in one hour. Note that the time is on seconds. If you want to shut down in 2 hours you would enter 7200 and so on.
Let me know if you have further questions.
