    I have a Windows Xp Prof. Sp2
    Dell Latitiude D600

    I'm connected on a dialup and this is what Im trying to get my computer to fully shutdown in the minutes i specify (ex:60minutes) I sometimes leave the computer on at night and don't want it to be still on when i come back...Something to make it automatically shutdown

    I got a program that shuts down the computer automatically. And it works...My computer shuts down but in the end it gets stuck at "It is not safe to shutdown your computer" I don't want it to do this, because then someone needs to press the power button to fully shut it down.

    Is there a way to make it so I don't come to this? Also..
    When I start up I see my username and a password box. I don't have a password so I just press enter in the password box, is there a way to make it so it doesn't ask for my blank password everytime I turn it on?

    I can't find where to play with these settings.
    If anyone can help...Help pls!!!

    thanksss :)

    I think that shows up if you have 2 or more accounts listed on the welcome screen.

    For the shut down, I checked Dell's site and I think I have a solution. You need to go into the BIOS (or setup on Dell, which is DEL key) and then look for Automatic Shutdown. This option may be disabled so all you need to do is enable it.
