Three ways to turn off, restart, hibernate windows 10 automatically


When you are on Windows many people do not know that there is a very useful command which is the automatic shutdown of the system.

I say useful because imagine that it is late at night, you are downloading a file that lacks a couple of hours to finish and you want to go to sleep ... As programming the automatic shutdown of the system, you can set the shutdown of your computer for two hours or more and you can go to sleep peacefully knowing that in two hours your computer will turn off without your assistance.

This command is Shutdown, and it is a small program included in the operating system that is responsible for managing the shutdown of the system when some of these events occur:

- The system is updated.

- An installation of some program is performed.

- Security update.

- System failure.

So you will not have to install any additional program if you are right-handed with the command console, and if you are not, it does not matter, here we show you several techniques.

The three techniques are:

Automate the shutdown using the system console:

Type the following to open the execute window:

tecla windows + R

Windows key + R

The following window will open:

ejecutar consola de comandos de Windows

There, type cmd to open the command console and press (OK)

The command console will open.

To turn off the PC

consola de windows

In the command window you write:

Shutdown -s -t 360

Where:

-s: means that the equipment is turned off

-t: Waiting time in seconds. For this case 360 seconds that would be 6 minutes.

To restart the PC

But what if we want to restart our PC. Shutdown helps us with this task in the following way:


Shutdown -r -t 4800


Where:

-r: It means that the equipment is turned off and restart

-t: Waiting time in seconds. For this case 4800 seconds that would be 1 hour and 20 minutes.

To close the current user session


Shutdown -l


-l: means to close the current session. But as you can see, it is not possible to use the waiting time with this option.

To abort the scheduled operation

We can also abort the scheduled shutdown / restart operation at any time by just typing:


Shutdown -a


Where:

-a: It means abort.

Automate the shutdown using a shortcut


If you want to save the task open the command console and write them or say you do not remember the options that you must write we offer the way to do it with shortcuts.

You click secondary (right) on the Windows desktop and select "Create Direct Access"

crear acceso directo en windows

A wizard will be opened to create the shortcut and you will write where the element's location says the following:


Shutdown -s -t 30

You give next, and then you put in name, "Turn off the computer in 30 seconds" (You can put the name you want). And ready your direct access will be created with the shutdown of Windows.


Automate Windows shutdown with a batch run file (Batch file)


We give you the option to download a batch processing program. But wait, do not be scared, hahaha. You will not have to install anything, just download it, place it on the desktop or wherever you like and run it as if it were one more application.

You can find out more about what a batch file is in Wikipedia.

The file is freely distributed and used. Zero Copyright, so you can do with it what you want. You can edit it, change its name and if you're curious you can even change its titles and the way it makes the options.

automatizar apagado windows .bat

It is very simple to use, it gives you the options of:

-> Restart

-> Turn off

-> Hibernate

-> Abort the shutdown

And you can insert the time in a personalized way. It is a better option than the previous one because of direct access.

Below we give you the link to download the file.

If you like security, then before executing the file you can give a secondary click and select EDIT to see the contents of the file and see the operations it performs.
