Windows 7: Built-in shutdowns counter in windows!

Built-in shutdowns counter in windows!

Hi,

I'm wondering why MS doesn't add a built-in shutdown counter to shut down windows system in X time (minutes, Hours...for example) ?
Sometimes I listen to music on my laptop before sleeping or downloading large files and get off. I wish that my laptop shuts down after such tasks will be finished (plus minus ~ some minutes). So, I think such a feature would be intersting in windows!
Why Microsoft doesn't enable the customization of system shut down in X time for example?
This is an important feature in my mind, so please MS add it in a future update! if not I'll turn on to Chrome OS as soon as it is launched ! Anyway, I'll turn to Chrome OS, at least for testing it first and then, maybe...adopt it for ever !

Thank you PooMan UK.
Actually, I don't want to shutdown my computer regularly at the same time everyday. Often, I don't shut it at all
So, I look for a kind of customizable, flexible and easy timer rather than a shutdown at given moment daily!

No probs pal ...

You could just create the the schedule and then just enable/disable it as you need ... a bit like an alarm clock
