Hi Guys ..

Im using a Macbook Pro with Os Lion, I'm looking for an app that can FORCE auto shutdown at a certain time .

The problem with the OS shutdown manager and other apps, is that it wont shutdown if any app is running ( example: downloading stuff ) .

Thanks ..

You can use automator to do this. Follow the directions on the link. I would put the "quit all applications" command before the applescript in automator just to make sure it shuts down correctly.

Just curious why you'd want to interrupt a download, for example, to shut down... ?
