Is there I way I can schedule a log off in Win 2000. Say, I'm downloading an file, it's too big to wait for it coz I have to go. Is there a setting that'll allow me to schedule an automatic log off, say after an hour, when I think the file is finished downloading, and then somebody else can use the computer.
If there is such a function, can it also work when I lock the computer? probably not right, coz it's gotta log on before it can log off. But plz let me know anyway.
Thanks.

One program I found is a WinExit screensaver that forces logoff when it is activated. If you want to check it out, look HERE.

If you had WinXP you could add a scheduled task with the shutdown command.
But there is a another cool and light-weight shutdown command utility called PsShutdown by sysinternals.
Just extract the psShutdown.exe and make a scheduled task with it and don't forget the -o switch for logoof.
