I’m looking for a freeware utility that will shutdown a PC at a scheduled time. I’ve found a variety of such programs on the web but all seem to run only if someone is actually logged into the PC. I need a something that will shut down a PC at a given time even if a user is not logged in i.e. the machine is waiting at the crtl – alt – del screen. I guess required something that runs as a service but I can’t find any such program.
Oh yeah, and if the PC in standby mode I want it brought back to life and shutdown fully.
To put it in a nutshell I have 65 PCs in a room and I want them all to power off fully @ 11.30 every evening whether they be in use, awaiting login (at ctrl – alt –del screen) or in standby mode.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
