Windows 7: Method to open and close programs at a specific time?

12 Apr 2009   #11


If you want the task to close at a certain time every day, try this:

Program to automatically close and open other programs?
When I'm running on battery power, I'd like to be able to close certain programs to save power (e.g. that send a smile/frown thing for MS Office 2010 beta, Skype, MSN, my dictionary program etc), but instead of closing them one by one, which is a bit of a kerfuffle, I'd like to able to do it with a...
