  • click on the start button (bottom left) and type the following: “shutdown -s -t 3600” as shown below.

As you can see it looks like a “run” command. Your Windows will give you a message that it will shut down in 60 minutes.

If you want to cancel the shutdown just simply type “shutdown -a”, and it will cancel the timer.
