Windows 7: Shut Down while in

Shut Down while in

Hi everyone,

first I like to say that I have searched the forum and google but couldnt find a satisfying answer. because this is not a error but something I wanna do intently.

here's what my problem is,
my notebook runs almost all the day time and when Im away it gets into sleep. but in the morning I need it to be restarted to have a freshly running one. so in the past days, I had this feature to turn off the computer after 3 hours of sleep(I defined the time for that power profile) and honestly I dont know or remember how I did it. and recently I had to restore a image due to some BSODS and now notebook doesnt get shut down in the night. and the advance power options only have choices to sleep.

I know there are many softwares that can be used to this purpose. but I prefer to achieve this within windows. and heres some things I tried,

*used task schedular to define the shut down time (2.00a.m., for testing a day time. it does work if the computer is on, doesnt work if its sleep mode)

*gave it highest privileges and wake to perform action selected but no luck. nothing works.

*I do not need it to be shut down when downloading or not idling(deep scan all over the night time), so add idling triggers with high privileges and everything, task doesnt trigger.

*disabeled hiber file via tune up, so notebook doesnt get hiber neither the shut down. stills in sleep.

NOTE: I have tune up utilities, folder lock, avast, zone alarm, and flux runing in the background.

and trust me, I had this before restore, I swear that just I dont know how I did it. any Ideas are welcome on how to do this. thank you all.
