Follow the given steps to schedule the shut down process:

  • Click on start button then go to Run


  • Type shutdown.exe -s -t yyyy or shutdown -s -t yyyy then press OK button.

Here, yyyy means time in seconds. For example, if you want your computer to shutdown automatically after 5 minutes, then the command will be shutdown -s -t 300.

But after execution, you can cancel this command any time by simply type shutdown.exe -a or shutdown -a in Run and Press OK. Your auto shutdown command will be reset and your computer will work properly.


I hope you will find it useful. Enjoy your countdown.
