    Hi,

    I forgot how to set time-limits for automatic shut-down or
    hibernation. Hint, please :)

    TIA,
    Richard

    You can schedule the invocation of a bat file that includes:

    %windir%\system32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll SetSuspendState S4

    Which will hibernate your system. We have our serve do this each midnight,
    as well as other machines that the operator might forget to turn off.

    Take a look at the Power Options:

    Start, Settings, Control Panel, Power Options

    If that is not what you need, please clarify your objective.

    Hi All,

    Great responses! Thanks to you all:

    Norvin: In detail (for my future recollection) this worked great:
    Right-click the desktop
    Click Properties
    Click Screen Saver tab
    Click Power button
    Click System Hibernate drop-down list
    Selected desired period

    HeyBub: I'll use this solution in the future:
    Schedule of a batch file containing the command:
    %windir%\system32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll SetSuspendState S4

    Jose: I checked my hibernation setting with:
    Start, Control Panel, Power Options
    ("Settings" was not relevant on my WinXP Pro/SP3 system)

    Again, many thanks for to you all.

    Best wishes,
    Richard
