Planning a shutdown of Windows

You must have an administrator account.

  • open a command line interface
  • do “shutdown -s -t xxx” where xxx is the number of seconds after which the system will shutdown.

Cancel a shutdown

Again you need administrator privileges.

To cancel a shutdown job, do a “shutdown /a”
