  1. I know there is a second page because I posted there once, but I cannot find a way to get there. I would like to see answers..
  2. I've had it this way for several months and it worked fine, however I wanted to put a way out for the user and pretty it up some. Thanks.
  3. Works perfectly now. All I need to do is put it in the scheduler. Thanks a bunch.
  4. GunSmokingMan, Thanks for your idea. It's just what I need. When I edit the command where the timer reaches zero I replaced the line you identified as the place to put the action code. I put in the following.....C:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00 Did not work here although it works in the windows scheduler. I am not versed in HPA or VBS so it is very difficult for me to edit your script. I'm also 83 years old and a bit slow. So please bear with me.. Also when I run the attached file the Close Button is not to be seen. Bill
  5. I have been playing with this to get it to work for me. What I need is a batch file that I will put into the windows scheduler to shutdown the computer on a daily basis. So far, I have made some piecemeal changes to the above code to set it for 60 seconds and to lengthen the countdown line. I am doing something wrong because it does not act like I planned. I also wish to put an opt out in case a user still would like the computer to not shutdown. This latest should occur while the countdown is in progress. I am attaching what I have done so far. Bill OOP's I am unable to attach a file. So I will copy and paste. @MODE CON: COLS=66 LINES=1 @COLOR E5 @TITLE Countdown @ECHO OFF SETLOCAL ENABLEEXTENSIONS ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION FOR /F %%# IN ('COPY /Z "%~dpf0" NUL') DO SET "CR=%%#" FOR /L %%# IN (60,-1,1) DO (SET/P "=Computer will shutdown in %%# seconds.Press Y to continue working. !CR!"<NUL: PING -n 2 >NUL:)
