Can you set PC to auto shutdown in power saver?

I am able to tell my PC to sleep after a certain amount of time but I would like to know if there is a way to tell it to totally shutdown instead. Thanks for your help

i.e. last night I fell asleep and my pc stayed on all night without ever sleeping or shutting down!

Sure. Take a look at this: Power Plan Settings - Change

You might consider either Hybrid Sleep or Hibernate.

looks like my best bet is to let it hibernate because shutdown doesn't seem to be an option. Thanks, Dwarf
