Will you handle the timing in the script, or do you want to put it in Task Scheduler?

Either way, you can use Shutdown() in the script itself, or the one scheduled (see help file).

I want to handle the timing in the script.

I tried this but not working

While 1
    If @HOUR = 3 And @MIN = 30 Then ExitLoop
WEnd
Shutdown(5)
That should work, though it needs a sleep to avoid sucking up all the CPU time, as somdcomputerguy pointed out.

What context is the script running in? Any chance it doesn't have permission to do that?
