Windows 7: shutdown after finished

shutdown after finished

I looked though the lists of free/recommended win7 software and didn't notice any auto shutdown app. I'd more specifically like and auto shutdown after something is done running, or a download finishes. Does anyone know of an app that does this? Is it possible to do it within win 7 home premium without an app? I see several available but was hoping someone had experience with something like that.

Thanks for the help

Many applications like Defragmenters, Torrent Clients etc have this facility inbuilt. That normally suffices for most users.

Frankly I have not come across any application of the type that you are looking for. You can however get an application at Idle Shutdown : Download Software to Shutdown Idle Computer that shuts down a computer when idle.
