You can use scheduled tasks to do it.1) Create a new task2) Dont use the wiarzd to create the task. Simply right click in the scheduled tasks area and select New from the popup menu. And give the new job a name.3) right click on the new task and select Properties from the popup menu.4) In the Run: prompt type:CMD /C shutdown -s -f 5) set the password6) set the schedule7) make sure its enabled, and youre good to go.OROn some computers, you can set an auto-off time in the computers CMOS, but I dont think it would shutdown the system clean .OR Per your addendum, you can set the power mode to shutdown the computer after three hours of no activity. Open up the display options (control panel display applet, or right click on the desktop and select Properties from the popup menu). Go to the Screen Saver tab. Click the power button and then set how long to wait before the system hibernates. Approved: 5/9/2012 4:21 PM
Do the other tabs variables and notifications work? Can you only schedule reports that have the variables embedded in them. No prompts? Approved: 12/12/2008 12:45 PM
