Hi all,
I'm looking for a program that will power up and shut-down my pc at specific times. Anyone got any recommendations?

Cheers

Hi wpickett,

On some computers there is an option in the BIOS to start computer and to shutdown you can always schedule shutdown.exe to run at a specific time.

Task Scheduler - Create New Task

I actually have a batch file with the following code in and i have just got Windows task schedule to run it.

Code:
shutdown -s -t 00
Just paste the above code into a text document and save the file as .bat
Note - Change the file type to All Types:

This site might help with the auto start - How To Automatically Start Your Computer - Video

Not the best quality picture but should be OK.

On a side note, the code for a batch file i posted above will shutdown the computer without warning at the time specified, if you need a warning then let me know and i will give you a new script.
