Default Parental Control Software

I am looking for some software that will shut the computer down at a certain time every night on its own and require a password on reboot......

Does anybody have a suggestion?

Trun on the Welcome screen in XP and set a password. that way you wont haev anyone get on that you dont want. Also a quick google search provided plenty of Auto shutdown applications.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher

You can put a Password on Boot, through the BIOS, and get an Auto shutdown application.

make a batch file for force shutdown in your certain time wanted

Ex: SHUTDOWN -s -t 01

where 01 is the amountn of seconds so if you want 1 hour it will be:

SHUTDOWN -s -t 3600

Open notepad write the code i just showed you and save it as

any name .bat

ex asdf.bat
