Windows 7: Scheduled shutdown?

13 Apr 2011   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
Scheduled shutdown?

I like to have my desktop computer running late into the night so that I can stream videos off of it to my laptop; however, I don't especially want it on 24/7. I was wondering if there is a way to schedule a shutdown time for Windows on my desktop, say for example 4:00am.

At the moment I just remote into it every night to shut it down, but I would prefer a more automated way, to ensure that it gets done, and that I am saving energy and increasing the lifetime of my computer.

Thank you
