Hi
you need to create a batch file then set task scheduler to run it in the machine

pls read this MS article:

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q234/2/ 16.ASP

How to do it:
1- use notepad to create say a batch file called shtdn.bat which it has this then put it in say the c (make sure when you save it that it has the name "shtdn.bat" only no quates or other extsion such as txt.

echo off
rem shtdn.bat which shutdown windows.
rundll32.exe shell32.dll,SHExitWindowsEx 1

2- create a task to run by task scheduler.
How:

You will find the the task scheduler in the task bard the last line of your screen which
is a rectabguler with ared and wite colock on it.click it then click add schedule task.then click next then click browse.then locate the file shtdn.bat. then click open then mark daily then click next. then set the start time and frequent evey day then the start date.thenclick next. if you want advance setting the mark it then click finish.

There's a free util called PCSHUT.EXE (probably PCSHUT.ZIP) available from www.shareware.com

you can get it to perform tasks before shutting down too (copy files to back them up etc.)
