I want to design a simple auto shutdown programm in Windows 2000 run up.
The require function is:
While run Windows, it start to check the time.
When reach 11:00 p.m., it shutdown / power off compulsively.
This function valid during the period 11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
Can anybody help?

Hi Teresa_Teng,
Many such programs exist as shareware.
You can do a search for them in your favorite software directory.

There are many freeware and shareware tools out there, but probably the simplest one comes from Microsoft.

Shutdown.exe is available in the Microsoft Windows 2000 Resource Kit. It is a command-line tool that you can use to shut down or restart a local or remote computer that is running Windows 2000 or Windows NT 4.0. If you want to schedule a computer to shut down and restart at a specific time, use Shutdown.exe in combination with the at command or Task Scheduler.

See: How To Use the Remote Shutdown Tool to Shut Down and Restart a Computer in Windows 2000 [support.microsoft.com] for more details.
