Computer shut down
Is there a means within Vista to set it so that it turns the computer off at
a certain time? If not, does anyone know of a third-party program that will
do that?

Re: Computer shut down
There is no such option there. I'm looking for a means to turn the computer
OFF, not put it to sleep. As a matter of fact, the sleep mode is the reason
I want a means for turning it OFF programmatically. Sleep mode on my
computer is defective: the computer wakes for reasons I cannot determine
and, once awake, does not go go back to sleep.
