    Unattended shutdown

    I have recently upgraded to Windows 2000. I use Task Scheduler to do some backup tasks late at night. In Windows95 Iused to have a task that ran winstop to shutdown the computer after the backup completed. Windows 2000 does not seem to have winstop. Is there a way to use Task Scheduler to perform an unattended shutdown?

    Thank You,

    Unattended shutdown

    These tools only talk of reboot. I only want shutdown, no reboot.

    shutdown.exe from the W2K resource kit will do it for you.

    Otherwise, some free utilities here at nonags
