    Go to start menu and open Control Panel.
    Click on Administrative Tools.
    You will see many options. Click on Task Scheduler.
    Click on Create Basic Task in the right-hand pane.
    Write a suitable task name and description. For example, Name: Auto Shutdown. Description: Shutdown my computer automatically at 1:30 am.
    Click next. Task Trigger screen will open.
    Choose the number of times you want this task to take place.
    Choose Start a Program and then, click next.
    Type C:\Windows\System32\Shutdown.exe in the Program/script and type /s in Add arguments and click next.
    Review your information and click Finish. You're almost done!
    After clicking Finish, the Task Scheduler window should open again. Now we'll just check our task. Keep scrolling down, till you find the Auto Shutdown Task.

    Re: How to schedule shut down in Windows 7

    You just set the time at which you want your computer to shutdown and it will shutdown automatically at your chosen time. It is a very useful program and is very easy to make. You don't need to install any additional software. Basically, we are going to use Task Scheduler for this purpose.


    Here is the step-by-step guide on how to set up auto-shutdown in Windows 7.
    Go to start menu and open Control Panel.
    2. Click on Administrative Tools.
    3. You will see many options. Click on Task Scheduler.
    4. Click on Create Basic Task in the right-hand pane.
    5. Write a suitable task name and description. For example, Name: Auto Shutdown. Description: Shutdown my computer automatically at 1:30 am.
    6. Click next. Task Trigger screen will open.
    7. Choose the number of times you want this task to take place.
    For example: If you choose daily, your computer will shutdown daily at 1:30 am. Similarly, if you choose weekly or monthly, your computer will shutdown automatically at 1:30 am every week or month.
    I want to shutdown windows just once, so I'll choose One time. However, you should choose the option according to your needs.
    Now, click next and choose the time and date for your computer to shutdown automatically and click next.
    8. Choose Start a Program and then, click next.
    9. Type C:\Windows\System32\Shutdown.exe in the Program/script and type /s in Add arguments and click next.
    10. Review your information and click Finish. You're almost done!
    11. After clicking Finish, the Task Scheduler window should open again. Now we'll just check our task. Keep scrolling down, till you find the Auto Shutdown Task. You're done! Your computer should Shutdown at the mentioned time and day.

    Re: How to schedule shut down in Windows 7

    Hi.
    Follow the below steps:
    >>Windows start menu search box type "Task Scheduler" (without the quotes) right click the entry and select "Run as Administrator" then enter your user credentials for the UAC prompt and click "Yes" to open the Task Scheduler.
    >>left pane of Task Scheduler, click on Task Scheduler Library, then in the "Actions" menu in the right pane click on Create Task.
    >>Create Task window under the General tab, set a name and description for the task then dot "Run whether user is logged on or not" then put a check/tick at "Run with highest privileges", be sure to set the "Configure for:" for your flavor of Windows, then continue.
    >>Now at the Actions tab at the lower left click "New", in the "New Action" dialog box leave "Action" set at "Start a program" at "Program/script:" type shutdown.exe then at "Add arguments" type /s /f (take note of the space between the /s and /f) then click OK.
    >>Now at the Triggers tab at the lower left click "New" in the "New Trigger" dialog box set the parameters that you want for the task, as everyone's needs will be different, I just highlighted a few of the ones that need to be set to give some ideas.
    >>After you have the Triggers set click "OK", you will then be prompted to enter your user credentials one last time and then click "OK" to finish creating the task. That's it the task has been created, at "File" click "Exit" to close the Task Scheduler.

    Thank you.
