many BIOS’s support timed shutdown and startups these days.

also windows 7 and I suspect 8 will - http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-performance/how-to-schedule-computer-to-shut-down-at-a-certain/800ed207-f630-480d-8c92-dff2313c193b

and yes from vvvv is easy too with nodes above

thanks,

I have it auto starting already, and running vvvv node from start up menu.

which is safest shutdown windows method, or vvvv.

I tried to find eq node, but cant. sorry to be stupid

Replace that = (value) with a < (value), just to be sure :D

edit: EQ is equal, or =. The forums replace some maths symbols for words.
