first tell me what version of windows are you using.Any way try these
The easiest way to control the time interval before the system sleeps in Vista/7 is go to to Control Panel -> Power Options. Select 'Change when the computer sleeps' from the left side of the panel and change the interval in the 'Put the computer to sleep:' option. Save the changes.
Control Panel>Power Options>Look at the task pane, choose 'change when the computer sleeps'>set the interval to your preference.
If you need more complex settings, try Erlis' method.
0. You'll need a batch file, scheduled to run at 1:30am. Copy and paste this into a txt file, save it to a location where it won't get deleted (C:\Windows) as die.bat (NOT die.bat.txt)
shutdown /s /f /t 20
1. This shuts the computer down (/s), forces any process to end (/f) with a 20 seconds timeout (/t 20). To make it sleep/hibernate, use the /h flag instead of the /s one.
2. Next, click on start and find Task Schedular. (All Programs, Accessories, Systems Tools, Task Scheduler).
3. On the right-hand pane, click "Create Basic Task" enter image description here
4. Give the task a name and description (example "Shutdown").
5. Choose when you want to task to run (example "Daily")
6. Choose what time you want to the task to run (example "01:30:00), recur ever 1 days)
7. Choose "Start a Program"
8. Browse to the location of the .bat file.
9. Click Next, Click Finish.
10. To test, save all your work, right-click, and "Run Now".
This is one of the best tutorials, I think, which I found it from: http://superuser.com
Can't say any better. This is the best if you need elaborate setup.
Another option would be to use a software to schedule shutdown!
MUO added in the reward section a software called Switch! It can do the work too, I think!
