    Hope someone could help me on this.

    I am currently using Window XP. I wonder whether it is possible to shut down my computer without human intervention. I'm able to do that for the monitor but not the system. I have tried the power options to no avail . I 've timed it 3 minutes but the system just would not shut down by itself. How can we perform this function. Is it possible?

    Assistance appreciated

    one way you can do it is...
    start menu - run, type 'cmd', at the prompt type 'shutdown /i'
    this brings up a shutdown tool (maybe, it does on XP pro),
    set it to display warning for 1800 seconds (30 min)...
    it's meant for network pc's but it'll work on the local pc as well...
