the max time for shutdown is 600 (10min)
No it's not, I just set it to two hours (I'm using XP).
larry is right, no upper limit on XP's shutdown. Vista's shutdown's limit is 10 minutes (600), but you can move the shutdown.exe executable from XP to Vista, and then use it unfettered with no upper time limit.
Thanks 4 the command
Thank you
u can set time from contro panel power option

hahaha.. come on jaay..
u can shutdown ur computer by doing this steps start + run .and type (shutdown -s -t 00)
the 00 refer to the time but in second u can put like 3600= 1 hour or whatever u like
are you use windows 7?
the command is not use "-" but "/"
so the command is : shutdown /s /t 00
in windows 7 the time is valid for only 0-600
shutdown -s -t 3600 worked perfectly for me, and I have windows 7 Ultimate
Same. Just used this command and it worked: shutdown -s -t 2600
Thank you

Create a batch file (e.g. shutdown_now.cmd) - (180 secs = 3 minutes)

:: Shutdown batch file. Designed to be run from Scheduled tasks at 17:50
@Shutdown -s -t 180 -c "Shutting down computer as it is 17:50"

Then create a scheduled task to run at 17:50 daily and call the shutdown_now.cmd script that you've just created.
